Chief guests at the event were Fr Jose Silveira and Fr Jerry. The youth with their newly designed jerseys began the event with a solemn parade with traditional flower ‘kopels’ on their heads. The traditional Sao Joao song by C Alvares was sung by the parishioners followed by a variety of traditional activities that were performed on stage as well as off stage. The traditional tug of war between the married and unmarried men and women was also held followed by various competitions and games.
