The Goa Carnaval 2020 was a celebration for all. A celebration of love, happiness, colours and culture. It is one of the traditional Catholic celebrations in Goa. After the Portuguese left, the festival began to die down. And in year 1965, it was resurrected by a Goan Musician.
A parade of floats, dancers and impersonators walk on the Panjim road near the Jetty as part of this tradition. Each one with it’s own identity and style. Tourists and locals alike flock to the various locations in Goa where the parade takes place.
A spectacular showcase of everything that is goan. From the traditionally baked poees to the narkasurs and beyond. Pages of the local folklore were turned wide open to remind the community of their roots and where they came from. A lot was on display as part of the annual extravaganza.
The individual’s part of the acts were brimming with enthusiasm. The eyes of the spectators gleamed with excitement as they watched the variety of acts pass by the jam packed footpaths.
