On Sunday morning at 9.00 am, large number of devotees have assembled in the Car Street to take part in the Okuli Habba. The celebrations passed off peacefully, thanks to the elaborate security arrangement.

Devotees danced as they sprayed colour water at each other as Lord Venkatramana and Goddess Padmavathi proceeded on the first journey of their wedded life. The annual car festival has a special significance to the Gowd Saraswat Brahmin (GSB) community  as it is a commemoration of the divine union of Lord Venkataramana and Goddess Padmavathi.
