The weekend festivities kick off with the famous Ratha-Yatra parade beginning at Yonge and Bloor on July 18th at 11am. The parade features three beautifully decorated chariots making their way down world-famous Yonge Street amidst ecstatic kirtan!
The highlight (and most unique part of Toronto's parade) is when the kirtan reaches its pinnacle in the "Toronto Tunnel". Chaos ensues as the parade cruises under a highway overpass and the resulting acoustics cause the sound levels to go through the roof! Theres nothing else like it imagine a sea of devotees jumping, dancing and singing to the pulsating beat of mrdangas and karatalas while their voices echo in the famous Toronto Tunnel! It is definitely not to be missed!
