With this holiday season upon us, devotees from Alachua as well as from Gainesville’s Krishna House, Jacksonville, and St. Augustine participated in the St. Augustine Christmas Parade in Florida on December 4th.
Hare Krishna devotees were the first part of the parade in 2012, for which they received the first prize trophy for best float. After receiving a trophy in 2013 as well, they have participated annually since only missing three years including 2019 and 2020.
The parade this year, as devotees returned, began moving at 10:00 am, making its way down San Marco Avenue and up Cordova Street, and ending at the Visitor’s Information Center at 11 o’clock.
Thousands lined the streets to watch the Christmas-themed presentations and floats by marching bands, dance companies, and various businesses and churches.
