Horse Races (01st - 30th April )
April brings the spring to Nuwara Eliya. Usually engulfed in mist, this Hill Country town gets en-livened with many activities in April. The British introduced horse racing to Sri Lanka and the 37 acre race course at Nuwara Eliya is still an arena for horses to beat one another. Horse races will frequently be held as one of the traditions remembering the British Colonial Era. Many tournaments are hosted during this period. Motorcycling, car racing, carnivals and many more festivities will be held.
