Bommalattam or puppet show
Puppet shows are held in every village during festivals and fairs. Many different kinds of puppets are used for this show – cloth, wood, leather, etc. They are manipulated through strings or wires. The puppeteers stand behind a screen and the puppets are held in front. The stories enacted in the puppet shows are from Puranas, epics, and folklore. These shows are very entertaining and hold both adults and children enthralled for many hours.
