Hosted by the Hare Krishnas, this Indian tradition attracts 50,000 people who chant and cheer for three honored deities, representations of whom are paraded from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium to Venice Beach on elaborately decorated chariots. A free Indian feast is held at the end of the route.
