Onam Week, the Kerala Tourism and Development Corporation's program of Onam events, is being inaugurated across Kerala today. This huge cultural carnival gets underway a couple of days before the main Onam day (Thiru Onam), which falls on August 29 this year. The best places to experience it are Kochi, Trivandrum, Thrissur, and Kottayam.
In Trivandrum, the highlights include stage shows, folk art, and classical music and dance. Download this Program of 2012 Onam Celebrations for all the details.
