We are planning to incorporate a theme:
Lord Caitanya’s 500th anniversary of Sannyasa.
We can make this the theme for delivering the Holy Name to the rest of the world. Mahaprabhu’s leaving of comforts to give welfare to the entire world, just as Srila Prabhupada did also.

Some places can celebrate everyday, some can celebrate on these special days within the period, per the date and location.
During the week all different kinds of glorification of the chanting of Hare Krishna could be explored including, but not limited to;
Dancing in the streets, sitting in the park, 24hr chanting in the temple, inviting other faiths to come and participate, etc…).
