The tableau of King Momo is at the forefront of the parade. On the first day, King Momo orders his subjects to have fun, to eat, drink, dance. Many floats are included in the parade. Singers, dancers, and musicians from different bands perform on the streets throughout the whole night.

Food and drink are kept out. At the end of Carnival, Panaji is famous for the famous Red and Black Dance in the Club National.

However, the emphasis is on greater local participation. The interesting thing is that this carnival has become part of the entire Goa culture, not a particular community.

Traditionally, before the start of the 40-day fast, this carnival was meant to give people the opportunity to eat and drink well. It gradually became a cultural event and then became the centre of attraction for the tourists.
