    1. La Carlota residents are all hoping and wishing for the success of this annual festival event

  2. I'm sure a lot of residents and guests of La Corlota would come back to celebrate this festive event. I'm sure they would have fun.

    1. You're right. Every year, balikbayan and the foreigners as well are coming over to this memorable, fun-filled event of the year the La Carlota people have.

  3. Oh! The festival is next week already. I could probably consider this for next year's travel plans, as I would love to dance to the samba beat at La Carlota! Ü

    1. Don't bother... This blog posts a burden in your end... :(

  4. I'm kind of envious, the festivals here in Metro Manila is not as fun as you have there. Perhaps that's the reason why Manileños prefer to attend festivals in provinces. It's always an interesting experience. Where is La Carlota by the way?

    1. In Negros Occidental, the southern part of Bacolod City, the capital of the Province of Negros Occidental

  5. i do not have an idea where La Carlota is, good thing I browsed through the previous comments. i must agree with sis Gene, festivals in Manila + nearby areas are not as beautiful + colorful as that of in the provinces. hopefully i will be able to partake in one of your festivals in the future!

    Happy Fiesta, La Carlota!

  6. Owww sayang next week na pala sir Gil- will add this event on my list- baka pwede next year. Thanks for the info. sir Gil
