There was another festival going on in the Park the day before Ratha-yatra, so FOI's crew set up all the tents and banners behind the main stage pavillion in the park. The morning of the festival we moved all the tents into place, and the transcendental show began. Hare Krishna.

After moving all the tents to the right location, Kapila Baba, on the 2015 Festival of India crew, brings a sledge hammer to make some fimal adjustments. That's heavy.
