Despite absence of attractions like joyrides and cultural programmes in view of recent natural calamities, the ongoing annual Baliyatra festival here is drawing lakhs of revellers.
Bowing to popular demand, Odisha government has decided to extend the ongoing Baliyatra Festival by one day.
With the administration deciding to auction prime plots at the coming Baliyatra festival for the first time, vendors have expressed resentment against it.
The Baliyatra festival, commemorating the ancient maritime glory of Odisha, got off to a glittering start in this silver city.
