Shigmo in Goa

Holi the festival of Colours! The herald of spring one of the most eagerly awaited festival in India and is celebrated with great festivity.
Holi heralds not only spring but ‘Shigmo in Goa. Traditional dances called ‘Rongtamel” is followed by beautiful floats depicting various mythological stories. 
Here are few of the floats that have put together a few of the floats that impressed me this year. Since we were late  I do not have any pictures of the ‘Rongtamel’ Maybe I will put them up next year.
