This is entirely for the ones who are craving for some energetic vibes with a dose of cultural and adventurous blend. After all, Goa is famous for being the favorite for national as well as international tourists for its ultimate positive vibes.
The Goa Carnival got highlighted after the end of Portuguese rule in Goa in the 1960s. It began as a rural celebration and grew to be an urban floats-based parade. Though it is still celebrated in a very traditional way, commercial touchups and hundreds of different cultural doses play a significantly bigger role to make it on a level that pulls international tourists in majority.
The carnival kicks off on Fat Saturday (Sabado Gordo) and continues till Fat Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday), a day before Ash Wednesday that marks as the first day of the season of Lent.
The annual festival of Goa is a riot of colors and energy spreading positivity all around and dominating the streets with extravagant dance and music performance. The local residents believe that Goa comes under the rule of King Momo during this carnival season, where the king preaches to “eat, drink and make merry.” The parade floats across the cities of Panjim, Margao, Ponda, Vasco, Curchorem, Mapusa and Morjim.
Goa is easily reachable by air or train connected with all the major cities in the country. Please note and remember that it is the peak season of tourism in Goa during the carnival, and hence all the accommodation are full much in advance. Hence, a prior booking for hotels and lodging is suggested.Airways
