Programme for the Carnival Weekend – 5-6th March 2010
Like I say every year, The only place in India apart from Goa, where the Carnival is held is in IC Colony , Borivali (w).
This year participation was bit low key but the mood was vibrant as always, and yes the usual suspects Karnataka Bank , ICICI and HDFC floats were also there 🙂
Though I missed the evening celebrations, Managed to catch the Carnival Float Parade.
This year King Momo was Kukud.

The only place in India apart from Goa, where the Carnival is held is in IC Colony , Borivali (w).
Though this year there were more Advertising floats than People’s parade floats maybe due to low prize money or the overall recession. Nevertheless the turnout and people participation in the parade was decent.
After the parade the event moves to the ground where there’s music ,dance, games, fun & Food. There no booze allowed anymore but people do manage to smuggle in. Update – booze was available @ da carnival, Tiger beer stall and local bar counter @ reasonable rates, Every body had a bottle or peg in their hand.
