Narlial Purnima (August)
 

In the coastal areas of Mumbai, fisher folk offer coconuts and flowers to the sea god Varuna to calm the turbulent monsoon waters on the last day of the rainy season. They worship the sea and decorate their boats, sing and dance, and make offerings of coconut. This festival is best seen at fishing communities in Colaba and Versova.

The full moon of Shravana is celebrated around August as Shravani Purnima, Rakhi Purnima and Raksha Bandhan. Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on the same day in different parts of the state.
