On the other hand, Goa Vintage Car and Bike Festival will have various vintage bike and car owners, users, collectors and fans parade their prized possessions around the capital city of Panaji.

The vintage bike and car rally will begin from Inox courtyard and go up to Miramar Circle and then proceed to Divja circle before heading back to Inox Courtyard where the vehicles will be on display till 6 pm.

This will be followed by a function to award prizes and certificates for various categories of vintage vehicles.  
A fashion show and various other entertainment programs have been lined-up for the evening to engage the audience and make this event a memorable one.
