I am not sure therefore if the organizers and the "artistic" committee or whoever is in-charged of identifying the icons of Bacolod City were either choosing the icons with a different criteria or were just running out of buildings to tag. What they could have done though was an online poll months before the Masskara festival and ask the Bacolenios this questions: "What symbol (place/building/object/person) can best describe/represent Bacolod City?" Then out of the many suggestions, the top 10 or 5 will then be selected. Given the chance, I might have my own list of icons to feature. My criteria would be aspect of historicity, aesthetic, Bacolodnon in its features (exclusivity) and cosmopolitan (modernism) in nature.
Add to the list of Bacolod icons.
