Onam celebrations of 2009 season was formally commenced by the  Athachamayam festivities at Tripunithura near Cochin, Kerala in a conventional manner. Habitually, different folk art forms of Kerala, decorated elephants, traditional Panchavadyam drummers added grandness to the Athachamayam cavalcade.
 
Theyyams  that take part in Athachamayam are for demonstrative / display objective only. Unalike the original Theyymas that carry out rituals in Hindu temples of north Malabar which explicitly uses costumes and makeup composed of organic constituents, these Theyyams use costumes and makeup made of synthetic and artificial components like ensembles of a dance / drama artist. For instance, in factual Theyyams, the headgear borders are decorated with red shoe flower petals, whereas in demonstrative Theyyams, it is with red ersatz threads.
