President’s Trophy Boat Race
One of the most celebrated and famous snake boat races in Kerala, the President’s Trophy Boat Race is a spectacular event held on November 1st every year. The calm waters of the Ashtamudi Lake become a race course when the majestic snake boats slice through the waters to lay claim for the prized trophy. The oarsmen striking their oars in unison to the high-pitched chants of boat songs and propelling their boats to the finish line is a spectacular sight. Thousands throng the banks of the lake, egging on the rowers and thereby joining in the frenzy. This is the video of the President’s Trophy Boat Race held recently.
