Bakood Festival 2017: Celebrating 346th Founding Anniversary

 

Following the annual festivity, it has been our yearly tradition to join the coverage of the celebration of the founding anniversary of the municipality of Bacoor in Cavite and wonder at the sight and sound of marching bands performing for the Drum Battle and MUSIKO ‘The Grandest Marching Band Parade & Drill Competition’ – the show performance of the top 10 participants showing off not just their skills as a whole marching band but also their talent in conveying the music into a work of arts. This year is Bakood Festival’s 346th Founding Anniversary.

Bakood Festival is facilitated under the Bacoor Government Center spearheaded by Bacoor City (LGU), Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla who formally announced that next year will be the biggest festival as they will introduce the 1st International Marching Band Competition to happen in the country; Congressman Strike B. Revilla; Vice Mayor Karen Sarino Evaristo; and Sangguniang Panglungsod Members.

We’ve reported last year that 2017 was supposed to be the grand event but the government of Bacoor decided to move it in 2018 to give way for a better preparation.

Bakood Festival showed up this year with 57 participating marching bands coming from different parts of the country representing some of the regions and provinces.
