Charlie Co's Majica MassKara Float: Bacolod's 30th MassKara Festival Centerpiece

As Bacolod celebrated its 30th MassKara festival this year, one of the many unforgettable sights is Charlie Co's Majica MassKara Float that served as Bacolod's 30th MassKara Festival Centerpiece.

Aptly entitled ‘Celebrating 30 Years of Smiles,’ the giant artwork mounted on a 30-foot trailer is a collaborative work by at least 18 artists combining different art disciplines not only visual but also dance, theater, lighting and special bubble effects.

The Majica MassKara float is Bacolod art coming to life with fun and glitter typical of the Bacolodnon spirit. The fantasy-filled float is project director Charlie Co's surreal characters coming to life.

Award-winning director-producer Peque Gallaga proudly declared that it is very Ilonggo and the first of its kind in the Philippines.

The Majica MassKara float was unveiled as a gift to the people of Bacolod City at the public plaza and was the centerpiece during the Electric Masskara at Lacson Tourism Strip and was showcased at the New Government Center during the countdown to midnight for the Charter Day of Bacolod City.
