Kabankalan city is located 90 kms. south of Bacolod City. By bus, it takes about 2 hours travel time from the city proper. Although it would only take an hour if you drive yourself there. The highlight of the event is the street parade which involves about 14 Barangays wearing colorful costumes and some of the participants would be covered in black suit.

We were a bit surprised to know that its tradition in Kabankalan during Sinulog to smear guests with Charcoal mixed in water. Always make sure to bring an extra towel to wipe it off. Teenagers would carry cups of “Buling”(charcoal) and smear anyone who passes by. =)

Hope you like my pictures. Enjoy!
