'Palode Mela' fest in Palode

Thiruvananthapuram, Jan 31 (UNI) A traditional agricultural festival 'Palode Mela', which has a heritage of 53 years, is being held at Palode in this district.
The festival witnesses one of the largest gatherings of village people in Kerala and is considered as a National Festival of South Kerala. It has been conducted since 1962, Festival Committee Chairman M Shiraskhan said today.
He said before the economic liberalization and globalization took over the scene, when farming and cattle rearing were considered as the spine of the society, a few farmers took the initiative to start the fest. Around 50,000 people attend the fest daily.
Wide varieties of tuber crops, vegetables and herbs which are the assets of Western Ghats are available at the festival for sale and exhibition and visitors can also enjoy various traditional Kerala cuisines. Various breeds of cattle are also available at the fest .Traditional folk dances and many cultural programmes are also being conducted, he added.
