It was a great day for some good food, music and a health fair! This all happening at the South Texas Hindu Temple. It was all part of the 7th annual Festival of India and Health Fair!

Dr. Srikanth Damaraju who is the chairman of the festival told 3 News, "as much as we like to project our culture and food we like to offer some service, so we have a community aspect which is a health fair."

This family friendly event was full of authentic food, Bali-inspired dancing and a health fair. More than a thousand people showed up for the Festival of India and Health Fair, which we're told is their biggest crowd yet!
