Our city, Bacolod, is known for it's yearly Masskara Festival. The highlight is always on the 19th and 2oth of October. However, businessmen and other people who would like to sell would usually start a week before and few days after in order to earn more. Many tourists are coming on this occasion and to gaze this competition.
Bacolod city, is known as the cleanest and greenest highly urbanized city in the Phil. People from different countries, and places would love to visit our city. Though it's quite small but it has beautiful hotels, fascinating nearby resorts and beaches, as well as falls that after seeing the Masskara Festival they would visit these quite places to relax and keep moving the next few days. Modesty aside, I love our city because you don't need to travel far and see the falls, beaches and resorts.
Masskara is the highlight of all. Many tourists are attracted to it and visit the place every year just to see the competition. This group above has been winning for more years already and no group could ever defeat them. They would take time to practice and spend much in their costumes as well. The barangay captain who is the head of the community in the barangay would really give their best in this special occasion. They were undefeated. Try to look at them and see for yourself. They really deserve the 1st prize for many successive years of competition.

I'm glad to share something about our porters in Bacolod City, Phil. These are the dancers that would make your day great before entering our city via Negros Navigation, the ship going to different places in the Phil. You will be amazed when they dance and how they perform, they really do it with gusto.
You can travel by ship anywhere in the Phil. since our country is covered by waters. You will enjoy the scenery of the ocean and the flying fish is at your glance especially when you travel during the day, then we reach Bacolod City, you will be entertained by our dancers before they carry your bags, or any luggage you brought with you. This is their source of income as well, they worked hard for their family and be trained to dance for all the passengers. It's nice, right? It's indeed a joyful moment for all the passengers and most of them enjoyed watching them while dancing.
Then, few kilometers away, you will the beauty of SM Shoemart where most of the visitors admired the place. It is near the seashore and most of the tourists like this amazing store. Wanna see our place? Try to check at our website and you will enjoy roaming around the city.

This photo is from the Phil. It is near Bacolod City, the city of smiles where I belong.This is already near the mountains in Mambucal Resort. I love this place because its cold and you can feel the soothing and cooling breeze. A lot of tourists will visit this place for comfort and relaxation. A place where you could see and travel the 9th falls. Going up is not a joke but when you reach the 9th falls, you will be comforted and you can honestly say, I did it.
Try to join Scenic Sunday and enjoy visiting other places around the world.
