Outdoors- Other to explore in Bacolod
It is notable for its MassKara Festival held during the third week of October and is known for being a relatively friendly city, as it bears the nickname "The City of Smiles".
One of the remarkable landmarks of Bacolod City is the Bacolod Public Plaza, a 2-hectare trapezoidal park with trees around the periphery and a gazebo at the center. Constructed in 1927 with music as the theme, the plaza has been a perfect place for recreation, political, cultural, and spiritual activities. Today, the plaza is used as a gathering place for workers, students, and families during all times of the year. Church service is also held at the park during Sundays.
