The legend says that, in a Valla Sadya all dishes asked for must be given to the people in order to please the lord. This unique mass feast with strong devotional moorings is being given to the crew of Palliyodams (snake boats). During the festival, a snake boat race will be conducted at the Pampa River.

Having historical importance, the Vallasadya conducted on Ashtami-Rohini or Sree Krishna Janmashtami day (birth day of Lord krishna) is considered much special. This year 51 palliyodams will take part in the feast. Food is offered to around 1.5 to 2 lakhs people at the Ootupura (a large dining hall) and also the temple yard. As per tradition around 3,500 litres of curd specially prepared will be brought from Chenappady in Kottayam district.

According to the practice, on the valla sadya day, the oarsmen will come to the temple in the boat through the river. They offer Nirapara to the presiding deity at the Nadappanthal in front of the golden temple mast and will go round the temple singing Krishna bhajans (Vanchi pattu). The rhythmic vanchi pattu in praise of Lord ParthaSarathy will make the atmosphere more sacred. Immediately after the utcha pooja at the temple, the 'vallasadya' begins.
