As mentioned yesterday, this year's Kandy Perahera is history. However, spectacular Peraheras with dozens of adorned elephants and plenty of dance groups are not only held in Kandy. The rainy season from July till September is the main season of Buddhist festivals, though Peraheras are celebrated throughout the year. You will find more information on our Perahera page, where you can simply scroll down to find information about alternatives to the Kandy Perahera. The next big event is Bellanwila Perahara in Colombo.
