Goa carnival to begin without Brazilian Samba float

  • tags: no_tag

    • This year’s Goa carnival will be celebrated sans the Brazilian Samba float after a string of controversies it attracted over the years, a top official tourism department said.
      “We do not have the float from Brazil this year, but our traditional Goan floats will be much better than the floats from Brazil,” Goa Tourism Development Corporation managing director Nikhil Dessai told reporters Wednesday.

      The much celebrated four-day carnival will begin Feb 13 in Panaji.
