BOAT RACE INTERVAL

Snake boats or chundan vallam, as they are locally known, are long, traditional, canoe-style boats used by the people of Kuttanadu, in Kerala. Typical snake boats can be 100 to 120 feet long, and carry around 100 rowers. Each village in the area has its own snake boat, which they race for the coveted prize, each year.
