SB 10.82.7-8
te rathair deva-dhisnyabhair
 hayais ca tarala-plavaih
gajair nadadbhir abhrabhair
 nrbhir vidyadhara-dyubhih
vyarocanta maha-tejah
 pathi kañcana-malinah
divya-srag-vastra-sannahah
 kalatraih khe-cara iva

Translation: 
The mighty Yadavas passed with great majesty along the road. They were attended by their soldiers, who rode on chariots rivaling the airplanes of heaven, on horses moving with a rhythmic gait, and on bellowing elephants as huge as clouds. Also with them were many infantrymen as effulgent as celestial Vidyadharas. The Yadavas were so divinely dressed — being adorned with gold necklaces and flower garlands and wearing fine armor — that as they proceeded along the road with their wives they seemed to be demigods flying through the sky.


SB 10.82.9
tatra snatva maha-bhaga
 uposya su-samahitah
brahmanebhyo dadur dhenur
 vasah-srag-rukma-malinih

Translation: 
At Samanta-pañcaka, the saintly Yadavas bathed and then observed a fast with careful attention. Afterward they presented brahmanas with cows bedecked with garments, flower garlands and gold necklaces.

SB 10.82.10
rama-hradesu vidhi-vat
 punar aplutya vrsnayah
dadah sv-annam dvijagryebhyah
 krsne no bhaktir astv iti

Translation: 
In accordance with scriptural injunctions, the descendants of Vrsni then bathed once more in Lord Parasurama’s lakes and fed first-class brahmanas with sumptuous food. All the while they prayed, “May we be granted devotion to Lord Krsna.”

Purport: 
This second bath marked the end of their fasting, on the following day.
