MassKara (literally meaning "many faces") is a popular festival held in Bacolod, Philippines every October. The colorful, smiling masks were initially designed to lift the spirits of locals during a time of challenge and tragedy. Today, the festival and its Carnival-inspired masks are a favorite of locals and tourists alike--with dance competitions, street parties, food festivals, concerts and more. Bacolod has even become known as the "City of Smiles" thanks to these colorful accessories.
