Oh Chariiiiot, Your Golden Waves

Kalachandji’s is one of Dallas’ most perfect little secrets. Anytime I have an out of town visitor to impress (who isn’t hell-bent on barbecue), that’s the first place I take them—it’s a little oasis with a gorgeous patio and some of the finest vegetarian cuisine in the city. It’s also a Hare Krishna temple, and if you’ve never been to one of their elaborate festivals, now’s your chance to experience their signature whirlwind of color, music and food. The annual Festival of Chariots recreates Lord Sri Krishna’s chariot-driven return to his childhood home in the form of a parade; the Dallas version will leave from the steps of Kalachandji’s, 5430 Gurley Ave., at 10 a.m. on Saturday, winding its way through East Dallas until noon. Afterward, revelers will return to the temple grounds for a joyous and family-friendly celebration until 4 p.m. featuring free vegetarian cuisine, music, dance, children’s activities, face-painting, henna and more.
