Almost all the cities, small towns and villages of the Tamil Nadu celebrate Pongal. Even the government of this state also express its interest in celebrating Pongal and helps other people to properly organize all the things of this occasion.
This festival is celebrated to trademark the successful yielding of crops by the farmers. Once the crops are harvested successfully, they thank the god and their land for the good yield and hence, celebrate this festival with full spirit and many other customs.

Additionally, it also includes several ritual performances, martial arts, cultural dances and much more. This fabulous event starts with the Bhogi Pongal on the very first day and then is continued by Surya Pongal on the next day. However, on the third day of this season, Mattu Pongal is served to the cows and cattle are given.
Fabulous dances and folks arts are performed by the several highly experienced and professional experts. Some of the experts perform some of the daring and threatening tasks. These tasks can even scare and frightened some of the people seeing all these things. While all these performance are going on, Pongal dish is served to each and everyone who come to see and enjoy this occasion. Infect, I would say that the colourful and beautiful performance is a must watch sight for every traveller who is on a trip to India or a citizen of India.
This festival is a good occasion to organize and visit the local tradition of Tamil Nadu. The cultural dancing, material arts and other programs are really breathtaking. And, because of this reason, many of the travellers who visit India always attend this function. Some of the tourists love it so much that they visit India again and again to become a part of this occasion.
