A total 50 entries in the “Nights of Mardi Gras” costume competition, an official event of the MassKara Festival, took part in a parade around the Bacolod Public Plaza last night.
The contest, which runs until tomorrow, October 12, will narrow the field down to sixteen participants, who will compete in the grand finals.
The winner receives P10,000, while second place wins P7,000, third place – P5,000, fourth place – P3,000, and fifth place – P2,000.
The event takes place immediately after the nightly “Tanda! Sing Na, Dance Pa!” contest./WDJ
