Reader photos: Southern California Moments, Day 219
Party time: Eric Lassiter took this photo during the 36th annual Festival of Chariots in Venice Beach with a Sony NEX-5 camera on Aug. 5.
"A joyful, noisy annual celebration hosted by the International Society of Krishna Consciousness," wrote Lassiter on Flickr. "Three large chariots, festooned with Krishna deities, marigolds and ornaments, and accompanied by drums, hand cymbals and sing-song chanting, are hand-pulled by Krishnas and their friends to the festival grounds in Venice Beach."
