Photo Recap: Dada Darshan Mela, Sadhu Vawani Center, Closter, NJ

We had a chance to stop by the annual Dada Darshan Mela over in Closter to check out the music, games (for the kids), shops and most importantly food. Below are a bunch of shots from the different food tables. We didn’t get names of everything, though everything sampled was delicious. Missing are photos from some of the packaged foods and a shake station featuring Oreo smoothies!
