Gandhi Boat Race is a grand fest on the rolling backwaters of
Kochi. Conducted in the last week of
December, it is a fitting finale to the Tourism Fair, which attracts
travellers from all parts of the globe.
The sixteen majestic snake boats racing neck to neck in gaiety and competition to the sky-rending cheers of the multitudes, is a unique sight. The coveted trophy of the race was instituted in memory of Indira Gandhi, the late Prime Minister of India.
