Bacólod City’s Masskara Festival is a festival showcasing the Bacóleño’s ingenuity and innovativeness. One of the recent traditions in Masskara Festival is the Electric Masskara. Electric Masskara 2011 will again light up the Lacson Tourism Strip on October 14 and 15. This part of Lacson Street, called Lacson Tourism Strip, is home to the city’s high-class stores, hotels, shops and restaurants that offer the most delectable treat in the city. Now on its fifth year, Electric Masskara will feature mask-wearing dancers on lit-up floats. Imagine your usual Masskara Dances made better by glowing lights and masks as dancers perform their street numbers. The Performing Float Competition will include participants from different barangays on the first day while the second day will showcase electric floats from the corporate sector and barangay winners in an Electric Float Parade. Watch as the different barangays showcase their own homegrown artistic talents and skills.
