To commemorate the 76th anniversary of India’s Independence, Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D – Plainview) joined India Day Parade (IDA) Long Island organizers, residents, and his colleagues in government to celebrate the 12th annual India Day Parade in Hicksville on Sunday, Aug. 27.
During the parade, attendees walked to the beat of traditional Indian drums and were excited to see the parade’s Grand Marshal Bollywood actress Malika Sherawat! The family friendly event attracted hundreds of residents from across Long Island while promoting Indian culture, customs, and contributions.
“Events like this, cultivate our communities and elevate our understanding of the different cultures here in Nassau,” Legislator Drucker said. “It was a pleasure to celebrate India’s Independence and thank IDA Long Island for organizing such an amazing event.”
