New Orleans May 21 & 22 Festival and Parade are Rescheduled for November 19 & 20- 2011
Due to the rising waters in the Mighty Mississippi River which are due to crest in New Orleans on May 23 we have made the decision to reschedule Lord Jaganatha's Ratha Yatra and Festival in Washington Square Park. Although flooding is not expected in New Orleans we feel people will not be in a festive mood. There is much devastation along the Mississippi drainage area and certainly chanting is needed. We will take Lords Jaganatha, Baladev & Srimati Subhadra out the temple on Sunday, May 22 to tour the local neighborhood while Their devotees chant Hari Nama Sankirtana. As usual a feast will be served. Let me repeat: Our New Orleans Festival in Washington Square Park on May 21 & 22 is being RESCHEDULED for November 19 & 20. This includes the Parade.
