Bacolod City is the capital of Negros Occidental. It’s in the Negros Island in the Visayas in the Philippines. Its population is five hundred to six hundred thousand.

The Masskara Festival happens on the weekend nearest to October 19, which is the Charter Day of Bacolod. Normally we open in October 1 and it ends on October 19. It usually starts with a fun run, walk, jog, hike, and then they [the Bacolodnons] all meet at The Plaza. That happens every October 1 to open the festivities.
