2008 North America Youth Bus Tour

by Manu dasa

Posted April 2, 2008

From June 21 till August 25, youth from around the world will travel across the USA and Canada for nine weeks on the ultimate road trip adventure, the Krishna Culture Festival Tour 2008. We'll perform dance, drama, and kirtana, distribute books and prasadam, in theaters, at university auditoriums, and at Ratha-yatras, plus we'll camp, hike, swim, climb, raft whitewater, see many of the most scenic places of North America, visit many temples and beautiful Deities, and make new friends. The purpose of the tour is to inspire, train, engage and empower each other in Krishna consciousness. The festival tour is organized jointly by volunteers of ISKCON Youth Ministry and Festival of India.

Take a look at an online video of last year's tour:
