Festival of India Advert - The Toronto Tunnel!

2:09:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , , , 2 comments

Toronto's Hare Krishna Temple would like to extend a warm invitation to devotees around the world to experience our 37th Annual Festival of India (Ratha-Yatra) on July 18-19, 2009!

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!

This video is an advertisement created for an internal ISKCON audience, promoting the kirtan explosion that takes place in the "Toronto Tunnel".
