The prominent among them are 'Kavasseri Pooram', 'Pudiyankam-Kattusseri Vela' and 'Kunisseri Kummatti'. The 'Theruvath Palli Nercha' conducted every year at Chungamannam attracts a lot of people from the local places as well as from Tamil Nadu. People come in bullock carts all the way from Pollachi and other places to witness the event. The cattle race conducted at Chithali every year during Onam period is a unique event. There is stiff competition among the owners of the cattle to bring the best pair for the race.
