The Sao Joao Feast of St John the Baptist Festival will be held on June 24th.
The Sao Joao Feast of St John the Baptist is one of the numerous Christian festivals held in Goa every June.
Brits travelling on flights to Goa are recommended to attend the festival on June 24th, which has been celebrated for over 175 years.
The festival is known for its unique traditions, which includes a procession of young people going from door to door to collect fruit and gifts.
Another fascinating tradition includes men jumping into wells to retrieve bottles of alcohol known locally as feni.
Beyond that there is singing, dancing and boat races.
According to legend, the feast saw its origins when a pregnant Mary visited Elizabeth, who herself was expecting John the Baptist.
It is said, that although he was still in the womb, John was met with the presence of Jesus, which gave him a great feeling.
St John would later baptise Jesus in the River Jordan.
