Bacolod City Celebrates Chinese New Year with Bacolodiat 2010

Bacolod City celebrated the Chinese New Year for 2010 with an elaborate and festive event called the Bacolodiat. Last February 12-14, 2010, the Tourism Strip at Lacson Street was closed off to all traffic as it was the venue for most of the festivities in the city including a lantern dance parade!

There were dozens of food booths near the Bacolod Lagoon area and fireworks display every night during the 3-night festivities.

All in all, the Bacolodiat 2010 was a great and terrific way to welcome the Year of the Tiger. We hope that this will be a yearly celebration for the City of Bacolod in addition to the very popular Masskara Festival that draws thousands of tourists and party goers to the city.
