Photos from the Krishna Janmashtami Festival

Here are some great photos from The Telegraph as they cover the Janmashtami Hindu Festival in Watford, Hertfordshire.

Both children and adults dressed as Lord Krishna to celebrate his birth. It’s estimated that over 72,000 people gathered for the this 2-day festival.

The cow costumes below are part of a promotion for the Ahimsa Dairy Foundation, “which sells milk from cows that will be allowed to live out their natural lives once their milking days are over.”

Quite the gorgeous festival, very interesting!
