  1. hi would you know the mudpack festival dates for 2017. Will be visiting Danjugan in July. The mudpack festival will be great for a side trip. A dip at the sulfur spring too!

  2. Murcia Mudpack festival is one of my favorite festival here in Negros. #advertising

  3. this looks like fun! I wish I could visit Bacolod soon

  4. The only mudpack I know is for the face, haha. You are really in the know of different festivals here in the country.

  5. This is a unique festival and it would be interesting the mud celebration and colorful costumes.

  6. Whoah! It’s really a distinct one! I remember when I was watching a Korean reality show where they were also full of mud on their body but they mentioned there that it’s good for the skin. Maybe that’s a different kind of mud they had?

  7. This is one fun event that I might check out. It’s been a while since I last explored Negros Island and if I everything aligns, I might just go there this June.
