The Colorful Street Dance of Masskara Festival 2013

by - Saturday, October 26, 2013

It was a sunny morning last October 18, the day I arrived in Bacolod from the port. I came from my 2-day visit in Iloilo that time so I chose to ride a Supercat Ferry on my way to the city that I'm already familiar with. Yes, this trip was already my second time in Bacolod since my family and I had a vacation there two years ago. I just wanted to go this time so I can finally see the most talked about Masskara Festival. And I was really happy that I did! The entire city transformed into a big venue where everyone, may it be local or visitor, were all in the mood to celebrate and have merrymaking throughout the day (most especially during the night). The plaza that I knew became the main venue for the most sought Street Dance and it was actually the event that I was looking forward.

I apologize for bombarding you with lots of photos, but I really wanted to share them with you so you could see how creative and awesome these dancers were that time. This was even the day for the Kids/Students Category and I can say that they were really that amazing when it comes to their dance moves. All of the participants only used one song the entire time, so it was only a matter of competing for their creativity in terms of costumes and theme, and their dance steps. It was so hot that afternoon that I salute these kids for they kept on dancing the entire time, still giving their best until they reach the venue for their final dance, which was the plaza. They even accommodate every person that wanted to take photos with them during the parade and even while they were falling in line for the final performance. You could really feel the pride and happiness they feel to be part of this prestigious event and I can't help but feel happy for them too! I already forgot which group won the competition but for me they were all winners, so to all participants of the Street Dance, big congratulations to all of you. 

I still have lots of photos from my Bacolod trip and I will be sharing some of them these coming days so hope you'll visit The Budget Fashion Seeker again. Have a great day everyone!

    1. True sis, they were really all out in terms of the competition. The street dance entailed lots of sacrifices and hardwork. they even have to drink from bottled water using straws because of the big masks. and they were just elementary and high school kids! napabilib talaga ako :)
