Goa is the undebatable Fun Capital of Incredible India. As the wild waves of the Arabian Sea touches your feet and you absorb the warmth of the sun, the Goa Carnival starts with a bang to welcome the New Year. The Goa Carnival takes place every year in February and is the best event to experience the rich culture and tradition of the Queen of Tropical India.
Goa Carnival is the best occasion for tourists and locals to adorn themselves in funky dresses and color themselves. As you walk along the streets of Goa this time, you will find people cladded in gaudy attire and glittery masks. Some people are even found with white faces, plastered with while flour. The parades of colorful male and female through the streets of Margao, Vasco, Mapusa and Ponda are the landmark of Goa Carnival.
Every street of Goa, be it the narrow lanes or the highways, are decorated with colorful lights. As every nook and corner of the state is flooded with bright lights, darkness from life bids goodbye.
Food forms a vital part of any festival and Goa Carnival is not an exception. As the Latin word ‘carnival’ itself means ‘throw away meat,’ people refrain from having meat during the four days of the festival. But there is no scope of disappointment as the other mouthwatering cuisines of the state, from spicy sea food to quality wine and feni are there to satisfy your taste buds.
Hence participate in the lively Goa Carnival this year and start your year erasing all stress and tension.
