Looking closely at each entry, I can help but be amazed by how the entries get better each year. Each mask makers made sure that their entry has something unique to show off especially on how they manipulated the materials.Indeed, ABS-CBN’s Masskara Village has been very successful for not only holding this annual grand event, but of developing the artistic ability of many Negrenses.

The Masskara Village is also a wonderful exhibit which will delight Bacolod visitors who are now in the city but cannot make it on the highlights of Masskara Festival.
