Night of the Masked

Masked Ball


Masquerade Balls go back as early as the 14th and 15th centuries as part of Europe’s carnival season wherein participants, guests and attendees come in their best costumes paired with fancy face masks; both male and female wear full makeup to basically conceal their identity so as to freely join, mingle and indulge in the merriment regardless of their social standings.


They eventually picked up and became so popular that they were used to celebrate Royal Entries: the grand occasion of welcoming kings and queens into their cities.
