This annual celebration kicked off almost a decade ago to turn the historic fresh water lake—created during a massive jolt in the eathquake in 1897 into an economically viable water body that would sustain different communities living around it. The major objective of the festival was to promote eco-tourism at this bio-diversity hotspot.

The four-day festival will witness display of ethnic culture and traditions including food court of ethnic dishes.
