Rath Yatra is a very ancient traditional festival from India and is now seen in every major city of the world. It is a fun and colourful festival that involves a large (over 7 metres high) decorated chariot (Rath) which is pulled by ropes by the public through the main streets of town accompanied by music and dance.

There is much spiritual and cultural significance to the festival. The festival concludes with a free lunch served in the park.
