The (6th) Bacolaodiat Festival was celebrated last February 3-5. Bacolaodiat is a celebration held during the Chinese New Year here in Bacolod City to strengthen the tie between the Chinoy and the Pinoy community in the city.
The display of lights was rather astounding. Really gives one the party vibes as soon as you enter the tourism strip.
We were ordering chinese take outs in Chow King (ha ha!) when there came the Lion Dance. The kid danced very well that I took a video (that I won’t be posting).
I’m not really sure but I recall these costumes being displayed in one of SM Bacolod’s bridges. In these pictures, they are being exhibited by live models in the middle of the street. These models must not move a single muscle.
One of the best events was this grand fireworks display (which is pictured poorly in here). I can recall it lasted for around 5 minutes or longer.
I was not able to see Parokya ni Edgar and Rico Blanco because I had to go home early. I still enjoyed Friday night though. I didn’t know Bacolaodiat was as fun as Masskara. Good Vibes all the way.
How was your Bacolaodiat experience this year? Comment below 😀
