Fiesta! Everyone's Welcome

Whenever a barangay or town celebrates a fiesta, guests are welcome in a local's home for food and drinks. Yes, it is part of the Filipino hospitality. In our town (1.5 hours from Bacolod) we celebrate our town fiesta every 5th of April. So if you're traveling to Bacolod and would like to see my hometown, then you are invited to our place. Just let me know if ever. ;)

Masskara!!!

Every October 19, Bacolod Celebrates its charter day and a Masskara Festival is held. It is a week long celebration wherein the highlight is usually the weekend before the 19th. Be sure to book your flight and hotel months before October since plenty of people are sure to be joining the festivity. There are street parties, bands, organized presentation, etc., and a guaranteed fun for the said event.

Eat out!

Bacolodnons love to eat out and to be "seen". It's just a small city where a friend of a friend knows this and that. We have a variety of local restaurants which we patronize and recommend with Pride... They say, when you visit Bacolod, prepare your tummy for food tripping. ;)
