Hundreds of Hare Krishnas to parade through Luton for first time in 'Festival of Chariots'
Hundreds of Hare Krishna devotees are expected to walk through Luton during a historic procession this weekend.
It will be the first time that the ‘Festival of Chariots’, also known as Ratha Yatra, will take place in the town. On Sunday (September 24), followers are set to start walking from the war memorial in front of the town hall at 12pm. The parade will finish at the end of Market Hill.
Between 2pm and 3pm, attendees can enjoy free vegetarian food, while children can have fun colouring and face painting.
As part of the ancient celebration, there will be books, beads and meditation stalls for guests to learn more about the Ratha Yatra’s history.
