Masskara 2015 Schedule and Talk

Masskara 2015 is finally here!

Every year Masskara seems to be changing at least a little bit. This year, Masskara Araneta Fiesta Alley has been added along Araneta St. It's open after 5pm every day.

Here's what I'm wondering: Why did they put it there? The traffic is unbearable. Not to mention, where is everyone going to stand for the street dancing competition? Everyone is just going to move south another block? Ugh! Oh well, it's not like you can actually see the street dancing outside of the first row anyway, and everyone pushes so much that I'm afraid to bring any children.

I have been wanting to go to Sta. Fe  Resort for a long time, and my wife quickly agreed to spend a day there. It costs, I believe, 50 pesos to enter and 50 pesos to use the swimming pools. They also have restaurants and rooms available.

Bowling in Bacolod

One of the few places in Bacolod that a Westerner can have fun playing western style games is at Lopue's East. There's a bowling center which has both regular bowling and duck bowling (a smaller pin and ball version). The center also includes some billiards tables.

Bacolod Valentine's Day Celebrations

Bacolod Baywalk

The new Bacolod Baywalk is now holding celebrations for lovers and families every Valentine's Day. The celebration includes dancing and art performances.

Bacolodiat Festival

The Bacolodiat Festival takes place once a year to celebrate the Chinese New Year (also known as the Spring Festival). It occurs for three days with the last day occurring on the holiday.

The Bacolodiat Festival has various activities such as The Lantern Dance, Chopstix alley, fireworks, lantern contests, dragon and lion dances, a parade involving several of the "Chinese" schools, and more. You'll also find many of the malls in Bacolod celebrating this time of year by having discounts and their own events.
