This year me and my cousins have planned to celebrate Holi in Goa, it is the first ever time that we all cousins are able to turn up for such an outing. I am very excited for those water sports on Goa beaches and bike rides. The trip is planned till April 7 and hope to have great fun. But apart from the beaches, does Goa has anything special during Holi? Have heard of the Shigmo festival but not sure of how it is celebrated. Has anyone been for the Shigmo festival or celebrated holi in Goa?
Hi - a great site for things happening in Goa is http://www.whatsupgoa.com/. You should find a listing of Holi events as it gets closer to Holi. Have a great time!!

Hi - try posting/checking out the boards here....indiamike.com/india/india-tr.... You're sure to find someone there at the same time. Enjoy Goa....

Hey if you are visiting Goa during the same time... i would suggest you should also enroll for the Kayaking training program to be held in Vasco from 1st-4th of April and 5-8th of April in Panjim. I think this should make your trip full of fun and adventure.
