Hare Krishna festival Saturday

Local Historic City News reader Wayne Fusco reported from the Festival of Chariots yesterday; presented by the Hare Krishna movement in Downtown St Augustine and the Plaza.

Krishna followers pulled a chariot, adorned with white, red, and yellow flowers that carried the statues of three deities.

The event Saturday March 24, 2012 featured street chanting, songs, and dancing, face painting, books and literature about the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, along with free food at the end of the festival.
