Event description

Pongal is a harvest festival celebrated by the Tamil community. It is a celebration to thank the Sun, Mother Nature, and the various farm animals that contribute to a bountiful harvest. Celebrated over four days, Pongal also marks the beginning of the Tamil month called Thai, considered an auspicious and heritage month.

Pongal is also the name of the dish made and eaten during this festival. It is a mixture of boiled sweet rice, derived from the Tamil word 'pongu,' which means 'to boil over.'
