Puri Beach Festival is the most awaited event, a grand affair in the land of Lord Jagannath. The festival is held in the month of November and celebrated for over five days with myriads of colours, beats, decorations and with lot of energy. The festival is held on the Puri beach – a treat for the sore eyes where the waves with their rythmic lapping creates a different musical note. The beach illuminates with various artificial lights, blooms with the fragrance of mouthwatering dishes of sea fish and one does nothing but admires the breathtaking scenario and gorge on mindlessly to attain ‘gastronomical nirvana’.
Traditional and folk dances, beach parties, fashion shows and other artistic presentation sets the beach on fire! People simply dance to the tunes of various rock bands, Odissi, Lambada and several breathtaking performances till the crack of dawn.
