St. Patrick's Day London Parade

This was the first year the devotees got involved in the London St.Patrick's Day parade, held 17 March.

It was a major success, and we plan to bring the Rathayatra cart for next year — with a green canopy.

We have more pictures of the event at, plus a video at the Vimeo site. Unfortunately, our movie is not the best, as it does not give credit to the first-class sound of the kirtan.

We had bass and drums, two accordions, and one leprechaun on ukulele. Markandaya is a gurukuli who works as a stuntman, performing acrobatics dressed in his inflated leprechaun suit. Unfortunately it was not recorded.
