Masskara festival – BACOLOD CITY, Negros Occidental — What makes a masquerade party fun? It's in the grins, obviously, and Bacolod people do it so well.

The Masskara (a blend of the English word “mass” and the Spanish “kara,” signifying “face”) is a Festival that began in the mid 1980s, when world costs for sugar plunged; and Bacolod City, the nation's sugar capital, was hit by a noteworthy emergency.  Masskara festival

The city government and specialists joined together to discover approaches to lift the general population's spirits (also their decaying economy), so they chose to set up a gathering!

Individuals garbed in rich and bright outfits move in the city, their veils intelligent of the affable Negrense soul. Outfits are made with fabrics of various hues and examples, decorated with extraordinary plumes, glossy sequins, diverse dabs and matched with towering headgear.

    The Masskara (a blend of the English word “mass” and the Spanish “kara,” signifying “face”). I do NOT think this is the origin of “MASSKARA” as suggested. It comes from the Spanish word “máscara” (pronounced, ‘mas cara). A ‘máscara’ or sometimes referred to as ‘careta’ is something you wear or put on your face to hide the true physical identity of your face so no one would know who you are.
