Snake boat races and their history is intertwined with the traditions and culture of people of Kerala . So is Kallada river and Kallada Jalolsavam to the aspirations and dreams of people of Kollam . Even today this boat race keeps on enthralling generations of people who gather on the 28 the day of Onam at their homes in Munrothuruth and West Kallada Panchayats for the festivities . The spirit and vigour of Onam days continues....

Kallada river like any other river has influenced the lives of people on either banks . Especially near Munrothuruth and West Kallada where the river takes a straight course . It is at this straight track or 'Nettayam ' , that the Kallada Jalolsavam happens every year . It is one of the most beautiful tracks in Kerala with a good view from either banks , which is lined by thick coconut grooves .It is a visual splendor to see the giant snake boats wade through the emerald coloured waters of Kallada river from Muthirapparambu to Karoothra kadavu .
