Carnival @ Goa

February 07, 2016 1 min read

The Carnival @ Goa, Panaji.

Very inclusive street party with floats put up by villages and individuals – the parade had participants from all profile  groups, the young & the old, the fat and the fit, the educated posh and the minimally educated simple people – farmers, fishermen – grandmas, students, brahma kumaris …all content all happy.

So many social awareness themed floats ….. about the health of oceans and trees …

Quite a diverse medley of participants in the parade!

Lost of small groups dancing to the beats of the loud foot-tapping goan music! The best part was the inclusiveness – grannys and children and everyone in between joined in as spectators or participants.

The Carnival and the Shigmo – coming up in March – are Goa’s iconic festivals ….

God bless Goa!
