Service Description

The event honors St. John the Baptist, who, according to Christian tradition, leaped for joy in his mother Elizabeth's womb when he learned of Christ's birth. The event honors St. John the Baptist, who, according to Christian tradition, leaped for joy in his mother Elizabeth's womb when he learned of Christ's birth. It takes place in Goa during the start of the monsoon season, and it sees people of all ages leaping into wells, ponds, and shouting their lungs out saying "Viva San Joao". The locals don beautiful hand made Floral Crowns called the 'Kopel' on their heads to celebrate this occasion. We'll assist you in getting ready for the festival and celebrating like a true Goan. At a local's home, we'll start by preparing the 'Kopel' (Floral Crown). While preparing your 'kopels,' you will also get a taste of a local homemade dessert. We'll put our artistry on our heads and head to the Village's centre once our Kopels are finished. Traditional dancing and singing, boat parades, and live performances by local artists are just a few of the festival's many highlights. After that, we'll go to a Stream/Well to complete the traditions by jumping into the water. We'll swim and have a good time while soaking in the local culture and the rain (Literally)
