Caracol Festival - Makati
Monday, January 21, 2008
Yesterday, I went to Makati with Arian, Enrico and Raymond to witness Makati's Caracol Festival. It was my first time to hear about this festival, so when Enrico invited me to go there my initial reaction was "what's that?" but since I don't have anywhere to go, so I grab the chance for a photo op.

Photobucket

Well, Caracol Festival was derived from a Spanish word means "Snail Shells" and it signifies the City being a shell of fun and merrymaking even at the time of hardship. The festivals theme is the preservation of Mother Earth and it was shown on the participants costumes. Participants from Elementary schools were mostly dressed in animal costumes like dogs, bees, cats and the most popular was the birds costume. While the High school and College students were dressed as fairies, butterflies, flowers, jellyfish, seahorses, Indians, squids, illegal loggers and a lot more. The participants also had a lot of props and special effects to emphasize their point.

Caracol Festival

I was a little disappointed with it 'coz I was expecting a street dance and a loud music or drum beats, instead they only walked the street from Makati Ave going to the judging area in front of Park Square1. It was a small place, so only a few people had a chance to witness the participants routine. It was a small festival unlike the Sinulog or Masskara but it has a potential to become a big one, if only the City government will fund and campaign for it. They should have advertise the festival so that more people where informed about Caracol Festival. Imagine, even people who resides in Makati for a long time haven't heard about it, what more to those who live outside Makati. And the host even said that the festival had started in the year 1986. Well, are they serious about that? It has been years people! I just hope next year the organizer will think of putting up sound system on the streets if not, they could hire a lot drummers for their parade so that participants could go street dancing. And a lot of people could witness the Caracol Festival.

Caracol Festival
For me, this is one of the best costume in the festival. Nice color combination and it has a lot of beads

    Never knew Makati has this kind of colourful festival. it won't rival Sinulog but it is a jewel of its own.

    The author of lagawan.blogspot.com has written an excellent article. You have made your point and there is not much to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not argue with: Despite the amount that you find, you or anybody else don?t recall taking off/losing their plasters at the swimming baths Thanks for the info.
