A SHORT HISTORY ABOUT MASSKARA

The Masskara festival which earned for Bacolod City the title “The City of Smiles”  began in 1980 during a period of crisis. There were sugar crisis and the sinking of the inter-island vessel Don Juan carrying many Negrenses, including those belonging to prominent families in Bacolod City, with an estimated 700 lives lost.

 

With the objective of lifting the spirit of every Negrense, Bacolod City’s artists, local government, and civic groups decided to hold a festival of smiles.  The initial festival was, therefore, a declaration by the people of the city that no matter how hard and bad the times were, Bacolod City is going to pull through, survive, and in the end, triumph.

 

The word “MassKara” was originated by the late artist Ely Santiago from the word “mass” meaning “many or a multitude of the people”, and the Spanish word cara meaning “face”. A prominent feature of the festival is the mask worn by participants; these are always adorned with smiling faces. MassKara thus means a multitude of smiling faces.

The festival features a street dance competition with colorfully costumed and masked dancers dancing to original Negrense beats; the Electric Masskara which features lighted costumed dancers held during nighttime; musical concerts,  Masskara Queen Beauty Pageants; Masks making contests, Giant Masskara Village and much more.

Of course, no one goes home empty-handed happy memories, colorful photos, especially for the hobbyists and the unique souvenir one, can bring home as “pasalubongs “ and souvenirs of the festival. Streets are filled with Masskara inspired souvenirs and masks peddlers…but formal souvenir outlets also offer a wide array of souvenirs.
