This is an edited music video showing not only the 2010 LA Ratha Yatra, but some of the setting up of the Rath Carts, young Dhruva's annual kids Ratha Yatra, Snana Yatra, and a few scenes of the Festival area and packing away the Rath Carts.
The music track is "Jagannath Astakam" from the Album "Illuminize" by Shabda Hari Das.
It's a wonderful album. Please consider buying a copy. (Available @ iTunes)

I would like especially to thank you for acknowledging my music at the end of the video, which is very gracious of you. Hare Krishna. In your service. Shabda Hari das
Hare Krishna Prananatha Das Prabhu,
All Glories to the wonderful Ratha Yatra 2010 Video. Truly A FEAST FOR THE EYES. VERY IMPRESSIVE AND INSPIRING.
You have brought out the Mood of the LA Devotees. The Devotee Kids, The Devotees, and Their Divine Lordships were all simply AMAZING.
After seeing your video presentation I strongly desire to at least attend one ratha yatra in LA. Please Bless me.
Your servant's servant,
