A total of 54 marching bands that came from different city and town in the Philippines participated and competed for the annual Bakood Festival 2014 here in Bacoor City, Cavite. The Bakood Festival is an annual event that celebrates the 343rd founding anniversary of Bacoor and also celebrating its 2nd year as a “city” in June 2012.
Rumbling sounds from lyres, trumpets, flute, drums and marching band instruments rock the whole town of Bacoor city. The 54 marching bands paraded their routine and performance all the way from Mabolo up to Talaba. They closed down the entire Mabolo and Evangelista st. just to make way for the annual parade of marching bands, which I know is the biggest and largest gathering of marching bands here in the Philippines, last year it was declared that Bacoor City is the capital of marching bands of the country.
