The Parade begins at 1 PM at the Plaza at St. George and Cathedral and returns there by 2:30 PM at which time the cultural program and free feast begin. The festival continues till 5 PM.
There will be lots of family-friendly activities and entertainment: live music, classical Indian dance. But the big draw is the delicious vegetarian food. There will be a sumptuous feast served free of charge to all.
