A smiling mask, representing present Bacolod, is rendered as a cheerful sun, representing her people’s hopes and aspirations.
It can also be viewed as a bird in flight, gentle but strong in her desire to reach her dreams.*
Festivals celebrate the most significant events and developments in a community’s life.
This year, the biggest event in Bacolod was the emergence of a new political order that rose in a background of tumult and unprecedented divisiveness.
That our people pulled through speaks of our maturity.
That is what we celebrate about in this year’s MassKara.*
