Masskara Festival


This is MEMOMAGNET, a souvenir item from Bacolod Masskara Festival. The term Masskara is coined from two words, meaning crowd and Spanish word Cara, for face thus the double meaning for mask and many faces.

The Masskara festival was first conceived in 1980 to add color and gaiety to the Bacolod celebration of its Charter Day Anniversary on 19th of October. The symbol of the festival- a smiling mask was adopted by the organizer to dramatize the Negrenses happy spirit, despite periodic economic downturns in the sugar industry.
