Goa Carnival

Date : 14 Feb – 17 Feb, 2015
Highlights : Colorful parades, feasting, merry-making, dance troupes of masked revelers & elaborately decorated floats

Goa famous for its beaches is one of the favorite destinations for foreign tourists to visit India, but one of the best times to visit the island state is during the fun-filled Goa Carnival festival. This much awaited three day event is full of fun, frolic and amusement. It is celebrated before the starting of Lent that is believed to be the time when Lord Jesus Christ spent 40 days in wilderness. This carnival covers the entire state and during these days and nights, one can notice a great amount of zeal and zest among the people. The streets come alive with colors, lively processions, colorful floats, the strumming of guitars, graceful dances and of non-stop festivity. Adding to the enjoyment people smear colors on each other faces. Entire Goa is decorated with streamers and people from different communities prepare for the fun parades and tableaus with various themes.

Owing its origins in the erstwhile influence of the colonial rule by the Portuguese and the Spanish, the tableaus do depict the history and story. The carnival is presided by the character of King Momo who commands his subjects to party non-stop. Unique to Goa, you will not find this kind of extravaganza anywhere in the country as it starts from the capital of Goa, Panjim. Many domestic and international tourists attend this fascinating blend of fun, frolic, color and absolute hedonistic merry-making. In short Goa Carnival is festival dominated by enjoyment where people come together and spread happiness.
