A popular event to look forward to :: Sao Joao Feast, Goa.
A common sight during this festival is excited men jumping into overflowing village wells to retrieve bottles of local feni alcohol. Sounds like fun! There are also boat races, singing and dancing.
Also called the fertility feast of Saint John the Baptist, this day is an auspicious day for aspiring mothers. They offer their wishful prayers into the ponds or wells.
A good time to try out Goan delicacies like Sanas with Sorpotel and Patodio.
Festival starts June 24th!
