What are We Talking About:
Did you know that Goa celebrates its very own version of Holi called Shigmotsav? And that it lasts not one day or two days..but for FIFTEEN days?
Shigmo or Shigmotsav, is Goa’s spring festival widely believed to bring good luck and fortune. This year, the Shigmo Festival will take place from March 10th till March 24th 2020. It celebrates the vibrancy of colours with dance performances, plays and a big, colourful, absolutely-worth-it parade:
People dress up in colourful outfits and take part in the parade by holding artificial swords and huge coloured flags. The fifth day of the festival, known as ‘Rang Panchmi’, is celebrated with extensive use of Gulal.
