The Nights of Mardi Gras is a special event at the Bacolod Public Plaza—the heart of the MassKara Festival.

Like “Tanda! Sing Na, Dance Pa!” and drumbeating competition, the Nights of Mardi Gras is also aimed at giving special entertainment to the plaza crowd, especially those dining and drinking at the kiosks situated at the San Juan, Gonzaga, and Gatuslao sides of the plaza.

For two nights, 25 models joined per night, with eight contestants per night advancing to the finals.

Of the 16 finalists, five were declared winners. The 11 non-winning finalists were given P1,000 each. All the 50 participants were given P1,000 each.

The winners posed at the Diamond Jubilee Tower located at the Gonzaga side of the plaza.*
