History of Kuzhithurai Vavubali Exhibition
In ancient days, the Vavubali was celebrated only on the Aadi Amavasya day. On that day, large crowd of people participated in this festival. On seeing this, the then Kuzhithurai Municipal chairman T.C Kesava Pillai, had an idea of conducting an exhibition on behalf of Kuzhithurai Municipality. From 1926, The Kuzhithurai Vavubali Exhibition is being conducted by the Kuzhithurai Municipality. In the begining, the Vavubali exhibition was conducted only for three days. Later on, the duration was increased and this year, the Kuzhithurai Vavubali Exhibition is being conducted for 20 days. Also, it is the 91st Vavubali Exhibition.
