Before this becomes too untimely, I witnessed LA’s Festival of Chariots two weeks ago at Venice Beach.
The main feature is the chariots. Several of them parade down the boardwalk from Santa Monica and eventually park at Venice Beach. There’s lots of Hare Krishna chanting, and all the people walking with the chariots seem to have a pretty good time.
The Free Feast
There were several stages set up for musicians and speakers and many others with information about Hinduism. People were milling around in what looked to me like traditional Indian garb. Lots of people were handing out fliers about Hinduism and yoga. It was quite an event.
