It co-occurs with Magh Bihu, which is the harvest festival of the Assamese people. The festival has thrilling water sports and other colourful events to cater to all age groups. Exciting adventure sports include wind surfing, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, para-dropping, hot air ballooning etc. Several cultural programmes and entertainment like elephant race and kite flying are also held.
