According to sources a district official said on Monday said Karnataka's City of Palaces has been decked up for the grand finale of the 10 day Dussehra fest on Friday, with lakhs expected to witness the victory parade. Mysuru's Additional Deputy Commissioner T. Yogesh told "The city has been seeing over lakh visitors since the Dussehra festival began on October 10, and more people are expected on the final day of the fest to watch the victory parade”.

Meanwhile the festival celebrates the triumph of good over evil and marks the slaying of legendary demon Mahishasura by Hindu Goddess Chamundeshwari. Accordingly the 10 day festival concludes with a spectacular victory parade of caparisoned elephants, horse drawn carriages, thousands of artists, cultural troupes and tableaux marching through the city. Furthermore in view of the thousands visiting the city, about 150 kilometers southwest off Bengaluru, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has deployed additional buses to ferry people to the city.
