Food for Daniel Fast
During the Holy Week, Catholic Filipinos practice Daniel Fast or no-meat fasting. Daniel Fast is a spiritually motivated diet where believers only eat fish, fruits, or vegetables in celebration of the Lenten season. Since the population of Bacolod City are predominantly Catholics, it is expected that fish and vegetables will be in demand. Because of this, there will most likely be price increases and limited supplies of the said goods during the holiday. Thus, it is better to buy these essentials ahead of time.
Crowded Catholic churches
Tourists who are looking to visit centuries-old churches in the province should brace for large crowds. Believers are expected to flock to Catholic churches on March 25, Palm Sunday and March 29, Maundy Thursday for the Chrism Mass and the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. On March 30, there will be processions in every parish in the province. It is advisable to avoid roads near major churches to avoid traffic congestion during the holiday.
