HSCF Community Hall and Grounds,
1994 Lake Drive, Casselberry,32707

Contact:[masked]
Hosted By: Hindu Society of Central Florida

I've never been there myself so if anyone has a meeting point suggestion would love to hear it.

How about if we meet to the left of the temple entrance at 11am.

I'll plan to be there with name tag and will wait for a few minutes for stragglers but won't linger too long so please be courteous to the group and try your best to be on time.

Also I don't know how parking is going to be. But usually festivals get crowded and crazy so plan to come early and avoid the chaos.

I am planning to take the tour of the temple first and then enjoy the food and crafts afterwards as well as the other entertainment shows.

If you come late my phone will be off during the tour. Afterwards I'll try to update where we are in the Event Comment section as we go and hopefully we can find each other and you can join the group. You can also text me at [masked]. All group members will be wearing ID Tags to help make us more identifiable.

If you are unfortunately not able to find us, there will still be plenty of fun to have and enjoy at the festival.

 

From Tuskawilla Rd take Lake Dr.
From 1792 take Seminola, it turns into Lake Dr.

    Thanks for pointing that out Allison!! I took another look and yes for this year it looks like they have a 'nominal parking fee'. Although the official site doesn't specify how nominal it is. http://www.hindutempleorlando.o...­
