This is an Indian festival known as the Festival of Chariots. Every year devotees gather in major cities around to help pull the Chariots carrying deities. This year Arnika and I visited the festival in NYC, at the Washington Square Park.
We got there after the chariots had already been pulled, but we still had a good time and enjoyed some delicious lunch. Here are some of the pictures I took of the festival.
Next I’ll post some pictures of the people I photographed in the festival.
