Dancing in the streets, brilliantly coloured floats festooned with a rainbow of flowers and feathers, masks - and of course the grand finale; the crowing of King Momo and the Red and Black ball.
There are celebrations in villages and cities all across Goa. The parade with its floats, entertainers and dancers moves through the major cities. Festivities usually begin around 3 pm and last for about 3 hours. The celebrations culminate with the famous Red and Black Ball which is usually held at the Clube National in Panaji, on the evening of the last day.
