Our trip brought us further to a smaller town called New Castle, in which a wonderful Ratha Yatra took place.

After Bhakti Caitanya Maharaja had given an introductory talk about the glories of the festival of chariots, Kadamba Kanana Swami and also other great singers led the procession through the streets of the city.

Several hours later, Lord Jagannatha arrived at his destination in the New Castle temple.
There a nice program was held, which consisted of beautiful talks given by Kadamba Kanana Swami and Bhakti Caitanya Swami, a theater play and several other events.

The festival ended with an ecstatic Kirtana and very tasty Jagannath Maha Prasadam.
