Yes I could just ride the train during rush hour and see many faces and poof, MassKara festival, right? Wrong. This festival is much more than that or so they say, I've never really witnessed the festival firsthand but I have read a lot about it.

First, people wear smiling masks and parade the streets. Everything appear colorful and jolly and lively and I also imagine it to be really noisy. Then there are activities like drinking, street dancing, eating, pig catching, pole climbing, beauty pageant, mask making, coconut milk drinking and I guess other things that google forgot to mention but the main point is that it's fun - like Disney, but more cultural.
