My India. Goa Carnival

The Goa Carnival combines ancient traditions and modern show elements and is one of the most anticipated events in the state of Goa. A man in the guise of King Momo announces the opening of the carnival and leads a parade that takes place in the streets of Panaji to the cheers of the crowd. King Momo, or "king of the carnival", is the main character at this celebration. The word "momo" originates from the name of the Greek satyr god Moma. Tourists from different parts of the country come here to be part of the holiday and get to know the vibrant culture of Goa.
