About the event

The parade starts at noon from the new ISKCON Parsippany Temple at 10 Baldwin Road and goes through Parsippany returning back to the starting point.

There will be a festival of India featuring a variety of stage performances as well as delicious feast items and other cultural exhibits at the festival site.

Ratha-yatra, or the Festival of Chariots, is a joyous event celebrated for thousands of years in the Indian holy city of Jagannatha Puri, and more recently by Hare Krishna devotees in cities around the world. Another name for Krishna, Jagannatha refers to the ecstatic form of the Lord with large eyes and rugged features who is carried on a gigantic chariot during this festival (and worshiped in an ancient temple at the center of Jagannath Puri.)
