Due to the impending major flooding of the Mississippi River in and around New Orleans, the organizers been forced to cancel the Rathayatra Festival, scheduled for May 21 and 22.

The scope of this flood event is practically unprecedented, and the ISKCON devotees in New Orleans ask all to extend their prayers and best wishes to all those whose well-being and property may again be at risk in the thrice hard-hit region.

The tentative new festival date will be sometime in November, around the 19th.
