There are three parts to the festival, first one being - worship of the White Clothed deer and the animal sacrifice to appease the Gods. Then the festivities take a light tone, where plays are performed with pastoral and agricultural activities kept in mind. Lastly, the cheer goes on through the night with singing and dancing.
