Past Year’s Celebrations

Festival of Flags

Bonderam

A chance to truly enjoy the traditional flavour of Goan festivities. The fest is held at Divar Island in remembrance of the age old dispute between clans existing on the island during the Portuguese era. Hence the multi-coloured flags that demarcate the boundaries of the respective clans. Once the festival is declared open, the entire Divar island comes to life. Events like fancy dress competitions followed by the traditional float parade and performances by famous music bands of Goa occur all through the day. The preparation for Bonderam begins weeks in advance as the colorful costumes for a chosen theme are designed and stitched, each block is busy preparing its own float for the parade to compete for the top spot, with music and dance practice going on in full swing. The entire village right from 3 years to 80 year olds participate in this event with the same fervour.
