The festival is celebrated every third week of October. The streets were filled with colorful costumes and smiling mask that commemorate the great tragedy that causes lives of hundred negrense. But, for better understanding about the festival history, you can check my article here.
Furthermore, the Silver MassKara Committee identified three festival sites – the Bacolod Public Plaza, Bacolod City Government Center, and the Tourism Strip at Lacson Street. Last 3 years ago the arena competition were held at the Pagla- um Sports Complex. But the committee decide to bring it back to the public plaza.
