The Indian Community Outreach and the City of Naperville announced an India Day Parade that will be held on August 16 to mark the 69th anniversary of India’s Independence.
The parade will begin at Center Street and 4th Avenue, featuring several floats, dances and performances, and will finish off at Central Park, where the celebrations will continue.
“It’s a small way of celebrating the culture, celebrating the heritage celebrating our city, that’s what it is and it’s going to be beautiful August afternoon,” said Chairman of The Indian Community Outreach, Krishna Bansal.
Mayor Emeritus George Pradel will serve as the Parade Marshal and Mayor Steve Chirico and Consul General of India will be chief guests.
The U.S. and India’s flag will also be raised on India’s Independence Day at the Municipal Center.
Naperville will become the first city to host an India Day parade in Chicagoland’s suburban area.
