If you still haven’t booked the tickets, then you may miss it. The much awaited Goa Carnival of this year is almost knocking the door and the official date ranges between 14th Feb to 17th Feb.
Goa reaches the peak of fun, frolic, color and charisma during the carnival with people across the globe attending it. Breaking all communal barriers, it’s time to step in the delight with drinks, dance, dress and more.
This year, the carnival will officially commence with King Momo’s colossal procession flocked with men and women in colorful costumes, musicians, dancers and even tourists participating in it.
In recent times, some use colorful masks to add to the cosmos of Goa Carnival. You can also participate in the competitions, contests, parades and performances that will happen in Goa around these three days.
Though the entire state of Goa attains a joyful status yet to re-live Goa Carnival to the fullest, your destinations must be Panjim, Mapusa, Margoa and Vasco da Gama.
An important note that many miss out before heading for the Goa Carnival is, consumption of meat in this span is an absolute no-no across Goa. This is because the Latin word for ‘Carnival’ is ‘to throw away meat’. Do not worry your hunger pangs have too much local Goan food to pick from, other than the meat.
When you arrive in Goa, your booze consumption is sure to excel. In the re-treat do add a lot of Feni, counted as a top alcohol which homes in Goa. Feni is pocket friendly, organic, healthy and most important, leads to no hangover.
Celebrations extend till midnight during Goa Carnival. At night, do not miss the brass bands, clowns, dancers, fire eaters, jesters performing in public areas to amuse you.
Goa, during the carnival is like fairy tale where a kingdom wraps in the woo of joy and happiness. The Goan music, the Spanish guitar, the Portugese touch is indeed a break from the mundane life.
