I was at the India Fest this afternoon. It is a huge celebration that takes place on the State Capitol Grounds. lots of entertainment, food vendors, and activities for children. Many interesting booths, including the Sehgal Foundation,one where they tie turbans, as well as clothing non-profits, and sports organizations.
Early in the afternoon, there was a parade that culminated in a ceremony on the southern portion of the lawn. There was a flag-hoisting, singing of the American and Indian national anthems, and speeches. American is the considered the oldest democracy and India the largest.
The event runs from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
