I have described on the intoduction page to my Bacolod tips that I had coincidentally arrived in town the night before the Bacolodiat festival started. This is a wonderful event, and timed to coincide with the Chinese Lunar New Year. I was doubly lucky in that I arrived in 2012, the start of the Year of the Dragon which is deemed to be especially auspicious.

The festival is three days of live music, eating drinking, dancing in the streets and wonderful fireworks displays and I really do recommend it to you. I cannot possibly do the whole thing justice within the confines of one tip, so I shall post a few images here and I would suggest you check the travelogues on this page.

Directions: Centred on Lacson Street right in the centre of town in the area Northeast of the lagoon.
