Get down and dirty at this year’s Mudpack Festival
Mambukal Mountain Resort in Murcia, Negros Occidental isn’t usually on the map for having big, sprawling gardens. But once the province’s Provincial Environment Week kicks into high gear, the resort comes to life with its annual Mudpack Festival, which will be held from today, June 18, to Sunday, June 19.
IT’S MUD, BUT IT’S NOT DIRTY. The Mudpack Festival is both a celebration of the oldest existing mountain resort on the island as well as the province’s way of reconnecting with nature. Photo courtesy of 20th Mudpack Festival 2016 event page.
This year’s Mudpack Festival will revolve around the theme “Art for Earth.” The festival is a true celebration of being one with nature, as well as a way to celebrate the oldest existing mountain resort in the island of Negros.
The festivities kick into high gear on Saturday with a tribal dance competition and a drumbeating competition.
Sunday will see some of the province’s best dancers going hard during the Solo Dance Competition. The highlight of the event, the Body Painting Competition, will cap off the 20th Mudpack Festival.
