The Nehru Trophy Boat Race is amongst the premier snake boat races in Kerala. Each year the Nehru Trophy Boat Race is held on the second Saturday of the month of August. The participants in this race compete fiercely to come out as winners.
The Nehru Trophy Boat Race in Kerala is held on the Punnamda Lake in Alappuzha. The celebration of this event also includes music and folk dance performances. This was started on 1952 when the Jawaharlal Nehru visited the place of Alapuzha and inaugurated this vallam kali.
The Jawaharlal Nehuru donated a rolling trophy to be awarded to the winners of the Snake boat race. People gather in large numbers to watch nearly 100 ft long boats complete against each other of old boats.
