Curtains come down on carnival in Goa

The festivities related to carnival came to a close on Tuesday 24th February 2009 with the last float parades and all other programmes in Goa coming to a close .

With the floats in Panjim , Margao and Vasco already hosted on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, it was the turn of Mapusa in the north and Curtorim in South Goa to have the last float parades in the state.

The Mapusa float parade was similar to the parades witnessed in Margao and Panjim besides some additional floats by the Aldona Royals, the St Jerome Boys of Mapusa, Lover boys, Peddem boys Anjuna, Bekar boys with a float on terorism, Nomoxint boys of Caranzalem with Goynchi Girestkai, Amigos club of St. Inez, Sangolda Boys, Discovery boys of Calangute etc.

The Curtorim village had the "festival of curtorcars 2009" at Curtorim which had the hosting of the float parade, the fancy dress competition which was a huge success besides a variety of cultural programmes. A super display of fireworks and performances by Goan tiatrists Wilmix and Sharon wound up the festivities.

25th February onwards, marks the holy lenten season in Goa just as the rest of the world, with the observation of Ash Wednesday.
