Makati’s Caracol Festival
Colour & vibrance
Witness a spectacular sight as communities come together in a delightfully colourful hullaballoo every third Sunday of January. This is exactly what the Caracol Festival Makati is all about. There are many Manila serviced apartments from which you can be a part of this fascinating affair and Ascott Makati is one such comfortable Makati apartment chosen by many for the purpose. Named after a local freshwater shell fish called “kuhol”, the idea is to celebrate a theme like the “protection to the hardships of life” and to make it into a vibrant Mardi Gras-like occasion right at the centre of the Makati Business city. Performers in multicoloured attire representing their respective companies, hotels, schools, restaurants and institutions would parade the streets putting up lively performances honouring Mother Nature and her bountiful gifts.
