Free Indian Cultural Festival June 29th

The annual Tampa Bay Rath Yatra (Chariot Festival) well be held Sunday June 29th at the Indian Cultural Center 5511 Lynn Road. This is based upon the world famous Rath Fest held in the beautiful coastal town of Jagannath Puri, Orissa, which, similar to the Kumbha Mela, attracts millions from all around India and now the globe!

Festival begins at 10 am with the chariot procession proceeding at 12 noon. When the chariot returns to the cultural center, vegetarian food will be served and music and dance performance will begin!

I suspect the events will carry into the late afternoon, though it is not made clear in Khaas Baat (where I obtained the above information).

    I found this: http://www.tampabayrathyatra.org/ . It says it starts at 9:30am - 2:30pm. But after our experience with IIFA, I assume it will probably not start on time.
