Dubbed by National Geographic magazine as one of the 12 must-do activities in October and featured by CNN as one of the 12 best things about the Philippines, the MassKara Festival has been celebrated annually in Bacolod which is also popular for its moniker, “The City of Smiles.”

Celebrated yearly on the third of November is the Pintaflores Festival in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental. Pintaflores is a portmanteau derived from the words pintados (paint, tattoo) and flores (flowers). The festival promotes the beauty of its local and the talent of its people through pageants, talent shows, body-painting competitions, and street dancing.

Angono, Rizal takes pride with its Higantes Festival that brings hundred of tourists to their town every 23rd of November. Known as the Art Capital of the Philippines, Angono parades around 100 higantes, giant mascot-like dolls that can measure as high as 12 feet and are made out of paper mache. (PR)
