Colorful Krishnas have annual parade through Grove

The Miami Ratha Yatra Parade marched through Coconut Grove Saturday afternoon, starting at the Hare Krishna temple at 3220 Virginia Street and ending at Peacock Park.


The large float winded its way through town and hundreds of people came out to cheer or even join in. They usually pick up people along the way who join the parade.

The yearly event is a fun thing, there's lots of color and lots of colorful people.

Saturday's event at the park had lots of music, food, fashion and more and Sunday, it's all repeated again, minus parade, at the Cultural Center at 3220 Virginia Street where there is live music, food, drama, books and more. It's a 12 hour event -- 9 am to 9 pm. Admission is free.

Drumming and yelling in the park. Good times.

I miss Siddha Vidya Das (Sid) who went around Grove streets leading Harikrishna drummers chanting. As the devotees say he left his body last month, he had been battling Parkinson disease for five years. Really cool dude.

We would see him around the Grove almost daily. He will be missed.
