Iskcon Alachua’s Festival of Colors 2014 a grand success! — By Mukhya Devi Dasi
The Festival of Colors 2014 was a grand success with more people than last year and many more attendees from outside the devotee community coming over to play Holi. Devotees invited colleagues and friends; we networked extensively on Facebook; advertised on Google, in local print publications, press releases all over Florida and on radio, too. We borrowed friend’s mailing lists, and the word went around. We shared our community, chanting the maha mantra, prasadam, and Krisha consciousness with hundreds of people who had never even known we were tucked away in Alachua.
