Floats started just after 4.45pm.
After the first float, they welcome the guests on stage etc
After the second float, there was a souvenir release ceremony followed by VIP speeches but 'vote of thanks' was the longest.. this long breaks made people to rush inside the barricades / parade street thus obstruction clear view of the general public.  Many police were there inside the barricade but they simply did not care.

Fabulous, superb, excellent – can’t find more adjectives to describe the effort you have put in to give us the entire bonderam show 2013 (Piedade Divar and Malar) in your August post. Your posts are very interesting especially because they are all about Goa and Goemkars and the culture. Divar Bonderam is close to the heart and we always look forward to watch your videos on these special occasions.

It was such a joy to watch each and every float and it is all because of your effort. We got to see neighbours and relations who took part in the show. Both the Piedade Divar Bonderam 2013 and Malar Bonderam 2013 videos taken by you were excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by my family, friends and me.

A BIG THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts and A Big God Bless comes all the way from Delhi. Keep up the good work.

Kind regards: Julie
