Posted July 8, 2005

Summer's greatest attraction for Toronto Krishna devotees is the annual Rathayatra -- the festival of Chariots. Devotees enjoy seeing the beautiful smiling face of Their Lordships Sri Sri Jagannatha, Baladeva and Lady Subhadra sitting in their respective colourful chariots and being pulled by thousands of devotees on the famous Yonge street in Toronto. This two-day festival regularly draws over 30,000 people.

July 16 and July 17 are the set dates for 2005. The chariot parade will start from the Yonge and Bloor intersection, continuing down Yonge street to end at Centre Island. The festival will continue at Centre Island for the remaining part of the weekend, to engage and entertain the public. Some of the highlighted attractions will be a free vegetarian feast, continuous live entertainment, vedic arts, exhibitions, dramas and music, as well as children's attractions such as face painting, puppet shows, etc.

ISKCON Toronto cordially invites everyone to come and dip into the transcendental festival and enjoy the association of devotees in one of the finest cities in North America. For more information please visit our Festival website:
