So, all set to celebrate new year party in Kerala this time? Well, the God’s Own Country may not be your typical destination when it comes to happening late night parties, gala dinners or live concerts, but the place has its own charm which is worth exploring and experiencing. And it is all the more suited for those who are not much into parties as Kerala has something unique to offer to its guests. Come and decide for yourself:

Cochin Carnival

The beautiful city has its own style of celebrating new year party. Come December and the entire Cochin city decks up for perhaps the biggest event of the year. Starting on the Solidarity Day of December 25th, it is a week long festival and is usually ended by a flag-off in dignified silence to pay tribute to the brave martyrs who died while fighting for their motherland. Ever since the Portuguese colonization this vivacious festival is celebrated in Fort Kochi.
