Naperville’s India Day events have been canceled.
They state, “On behalf of all of us at ICO, we are very disappointed to announce that due to the Governor’s regulations and current situation, we will not be able to proceed with the India Day celebration this year as planned.”
The group is looking into some type of alternative event that could take its place, and is asking the public for ideas. Some safer solutions being considered are a possible virtual concert from a popular Bollywood singer, a car parade, or a fireworks show.
Other suggestions can be submitted on the group’s Facebook page.
