There will be no MassKara sa Panaad this year, Negros Occidental Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson said on Friday, September 15.
One of the features of the MassKara Festival in October last year was the opening of the pavilions of the 31 towns and cities of Negros Occidental and entertainment activities at the provincial government’s Panaad Park and Stadium in Barangay Mansilingan, Bacolod City, for a week.
The provincial government will have no participation in the MassKara Festival this year as there was no formal request from the organizers, Lacson said.
“Maybe it’s because the festival was so spread out last year…so maybe without Panaad the activity areas will be more compressed,” Lacson said.*
