Preparations are in full swing in India’s sunshine state, Goa, for the annual Carnival (Carnaval). The four-day festival is reminiscent of Goa’s Portuguese legacy. Observed just before the commencement of Lent (a 40-day period marked by penitential preparation for Easter), it started as a Christian festival but is now celebrated by everyone. This year, the Carnival will be held from February 26 and March 1.

Although the carnival is organised in many towns and villages of Goa, the biggest extravaganza is held at the state capital – Panaji (Panjim). Led by King Momo, the colourful float parade winds its way through the city with everyone cheering the participants. Goa Tourism will declare the name of King Momo on February 22 (selected from the applicants).

The centrally located Jardin Garcia de Orta will be styled as the Samba Square for the four days of the festival. To ensure that the crowd can disperse over a wide area, the local administration has introduced a few more venues, including the recently renovated walkway along the Miramar Beach.

According to media reports, the float parade will begin at 3pm and will include several categories, such as traditional, clubs and institutions, family, junk and jokers. The traditional Red and Black dance will be held on the last day of the festival (the day coincides with the festival of Holi).

The local food and beverage industry is also participating in a big way this year. There will be a bunch of food stalls at the Samba Square and Miramar walkway, while pubs and restaurants will hold their own carnival themed food festivals. Other attractions include pop-up bazar at Samba Square, walks and cycle tours, cultural performances, special programmes for children, etc.

The Carnival will also be celebrated in Margao (February 27), Vasco (February 28) and Mapusa (March 1).

I was having Herpes Simplex Virus then i came across a review of people saying that they got treated from Herpes Simplex Virus by Dr Voke, So i gave a try by contacting him through his email and explain my problem to him He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished so if you are also heart broken by any deadly diseases like HERPES HIV, shingles,low sperm count or bringing back your ex lover, this great man is extremely the best in which I have seen and applauds and if you also need a help, you can also email him via email (doctorvoke1)
