The 'Viva Goa Carnival 2024' is all set to embark on with full-fledged preparations. Travelers have already started reaching the spots. The historic celebration will be held at popular Goa destinations, Panjim , Margao , Mapusa and Vasco, between 10 and 14 of the ongoing month.

Travel enthusiasts should join the festivity to enjoy different performances and other alluring musical evenings by the beaches. However, it is regarded as one of the most significant celebrations for Indian Catholic Christians, but it has a syncretic vibe. This 4-day Goa Carnival was first introduced in the 16th century. It was then an effort to respect cultural heritage and mitigate differences by the Portuguese, who ruled over the territory. This celebration of inclusivity holds a quite wide-spectrum legacy of different genres of music, heritage dances, and vibrant artistic innovations to cherish the hues of mixed cultures.

Every year, the celebration consists of a series of plays to remember the glorious past of Goa and pay tribute to the heroes. During theatre sessions, a person plays King Momo while different artists join as acrobats. The best thing about the carnival is that the floor is always open for everyone to join in and rock.

Fish and meat recipes are widely served during the programs, while it has been heaven for those who are interested in wines and cocktails. Colorful make-up and experimental costumes also allure the eyeballs with full-on zeal and zest.

Dolkas, the rustic drums, are played to celebrate the heritage of Goan traditions. The 'Red and Black' dance is again something that attracts tourists on a wide scale. This year, the festival would again unfold and repeat the legacy of special continental culture.

You can reach the destinations by flight. The entry would be free for several programs. Plan soon to avoid the last-minute rush!
