About Bacolod City
   Bacolod is a highly urbanized city in Negros Province in the Philippines.  It is the next most populous city in the Visayas after Metro Cebu.  It is known as the City of Smiles because of its MassKara Festival, a Mardi Gras-like festival held every October.
   Bacólod (English: Bacolod), is derived from bakólod (Old Spelling: bacólod), the Old Hiligaynon or Old Ilonggo (Old Spelling: Ylongo and Ilongo) word for a "hill, mound, rise, hillock, down, any small eminence or elevation", since the resettlement was founded on a stony, hilly area, now the barangay of Granada. It was officially called Ciudad de Bacólod (City of Bacolod) when Municipalidad de Bacólod (Municipality of Bacolod) was converted into a city in 1938.
   Bacolod is known as the Land of Sweet People, and for its culinary heritage, including its inasal (a kind of roast chicken on skewers) and sweet dessert treats and is
