Capturing Caracol Festival
The festival is initiated by the local government of Makati City to promote the conservation of our ecology. It is held on the streets of Makati City and is participated mostly by students representing different schools and people from different barangays. The participants are dressed in colorful animal costumes.
The area is the new lifestyle playground and family entertainment area which is located in the former Sta. Ana Racetrack in Makati City.
The event started at 4:00 PM. We weren’t able to witness the street fair anymore as we went straight to the entertainment ground and looked for a nice spot to see the show. At around 5:00 PM, the participants started entering the entertainment ground one by one representing their ways of conserving the ecosystem. Once everyone has been introduced, the show started. There are 12 participants which are clustered into three groups, students from selected Elementary schools, students from selected High Schools and representatives from selected barangays.
And here are some of my snapshots showing how Makati City celebrates the Caracol Festival.
More than just skyscrapers, Makati City is also a home of a colorful festival.
This festival only shows that Makati City isn’t just about commercialism, the colorful costumes that graced the streets and the entertainment ground in Circuit Makati also represents that the city cares about and promotes the conservation of our ecology and biodiversity.
Make it Makati
