The Gay and vivacious Punjabi's
are very fond of fairs and festivals and almost every fortnight
there is a fair or a festival in one part of the state or the other.
People come to participate in such functions from far-off places,
trudging dusty distances. Many a fair is held in memory of a saint
or a pir, and people from all communities living in a village participate
in it. Men, women and children of all ages, classes and creeds flock
in hundreds and enjoy the numerous fascinating features of the fair
: races, singing, wrestling bouts, acrobatics etc. More..
