A celebration of reuniting hearts and a magical family event for all.
Join in and celebrate one of India's ancient festivals.

The Festival of Joy – also celebrated as the Festival of Chariots, or Ratha Yatra – has its roots in ancient India and the bhakti tradition and is celebrated in major cities all across the world.

Krishna, a Sanskrit name for God, has been away from His childhood home since he became King. When his best friends decide to visit his kingdom, they see him in his fancy royal outfits and feel he is a stranger. In their longing, they pick up the ropes that yoke the horses to his grand chariot and affectionately force him to return home with them.

This festival is a chance for us to do the same – to reconnect and celebrate family and friends – while feeling that same joy.
