Vancovuer Ratha-Yatra

by ISKCON Vancouver

Posted August 18, 2005

On behalf of ISKCON Vancouver & Lord Jagannatha, the Lord of the Universe, we would like to invite you to celebrate Vancouver's 31st annual Ratha-Yatra. (Chariot Festival) on Sunday August 21st.

Come and pull one of the Three Chariots along the Beach Avenue's 3km. route beside beautiful English Bay into world famous Stanley Park where you can enjoy an afternoon of Singing Dancing and Feasting.

After last year's festival, His Holiness Jayadaita Swami wrote.

"Among the many Rathayatra festivals I traveled to this year with the Youth Bus Tour, I think the Vancouver festival was rivaled only by the festival in L.A. Congratulations!"

We have planned more events for our children too. Face Painting, Puppet shows, Balloon Artists and much more. Their experience of these sacred festivals should be a lasting and enjoyable one. They should experience how wonderful their culture is... And what better way than through a festival.

Please come to Vancouver's Annual Ratha-Yatra on Sunday August 21st 2005.
