The streets of Colombo transform under the weight of 100 elephants colored during the full moon of February. Since 1979, the Maha Perahera Navam annually attracts more than a million viewers in the Temple Gangaramaya in Hunupitiya picturesque Beira Lake. The event typically hosts up to 1,000 artists. The fearsome kas karayas inaugurate the processions snapping their whips in the air while the crowd behind schoolchildren waving colorful flags. Bands are very loud percussion, conch shells, waders, flutists and drummers, but the guests of honor are real elephants, which come from all over the island.
