There are shops and festivity that is characteristic of all Rajasthani fairs. The bubbling people who throng to the fair in their colorful attire certainly add the charms to this gala occasion. Body tattooing is the favorite indulgence of the people and the fair features troupes of Gair dancers dressed in brightly hued attires and a style, which is typical to the area from where they come.
The horse show is the unique feature of the fair that attracts tourists
and one can see hundreds of 'Marwari' horses at the fair that have been
well-bred and trained to perform tricks and dance to the beats of drums
with the characteristic local rhythm.
