Bhaktivedanta Manor in Watford is hosting the biggest Krishna Festival outside of India.

Up to 80,000 people are expected to go to the temple over the three days.

It's to celebrate the birthday of Lord Krishna.

It's the biggest event on the Hindu calendar and people come from all over the county to celebrate in Watford. 

Events, music and food are a big part of the celebrations which are open to people of all faiths.

This year, organisers have included an Olympic theme as the festival will end at the same time as the Olympic Closing Ceremony.
