Mambukal Mud Festival 2013 - 12.jpg
The Mambukal Mud Festival is held every 3rd week of June in the grounds of the Mambukal Resort,Murcia,Negros Occidental.One of the smaller Philippine festivals but is quite unique in that Environmental issues are the focal point.Dance groups & contingent members are clad head to toe in the varying colours of mud to be found in and around Mambukal.Costumes can be very intricate using natural materials which reflect the current state of the Environment and the need for preservation efforts to be made. A perfect place for such an event as the grounds are forested with many different flora,fauna & trees - not to mention the thousands of fruit bats that inhabit the area - quite spectacular to see them leave their roosting areas in huge waves come sunset to return from feeding under a cacophony of sound in the morning.
