How To Celebrate The Chinese New Year in Bacolod City

My First Ever Bacolaodiat Festival

Like I said in my previous post, this is my first time ever to attend the Bacolaodiat Festival.  When the festival committee sent the Negrense Blogging Society, Inc. an invitation to attend and cover the activities (February 7-10, 2013), I immediately sent out the call to our board and other Negros bloggers.  After getting our press kits, I was supposed to meet up with 2 other bloggers to watch the dazzling dance parade, lantern street dance competition, the cultural show and then dinner at the chopstick's alley.  Unfortunately, I was not able to watch the parade (could not get off work) and so, I am still waiting for the pictures that one of our other board member took.  Here are some pictures from last year which I took from their website.
