On September 8, the feast of the nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (the birthday of Mother Mary, mother of Jesus Christ), is celebrated in a unique way in Majorda.
In Majorda, you will find boats laden with flowers today! These are traditionally decorated boats with palm leaves, flowers, etc.
Sea men and sailors from the village have great devotion towards Our Lady and consider her their protector.
You can see how meticulously and artistically these boats have been crafted.
These boats are also decorated with plenty of local flowers and garlands. The priest blesses these boats after the feast mass.
Here's a boat that has a depiction of the Blessed Virgin Mary, as an infant.
The boats are then displayed in the Majorda church compound. The village then celebrates the feast with traditional pomp and gaiety.
