“It has been 30 years that Bacolod City has been showing its resiliency in overcoming challenges through thick and thin,” Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said as he officially opened the 30 th MassKara Festival last night.
“Today, our 2009 MassKara Festival is already the number one tourist attraction, an economic stimulant, and the icon of Bacolod,” he said at the opening program at the Bacolod public plaza that was followed by fireworks and a concert sponsored by festival co-presentor San Miguel Beer.
Leonardia said MassKara is a treasure of Bacolod and its face.
