INDIA DAY by Federation of Indian Associations of NSW was a spectacular success
India Day to celebrate Indian Independence Day on Saturday 15th August, 2015 in Parramatta was a huge success with 10,000+ people attending it throughout the day, starting at 1PM and finishing at 7.30PM. This was a family event, and alcohol-free event, which they enjoyed with food, fun, culture and kids’ rides culminating in a spectacular firework display, which lit the sky of Parramatta.
A variety of performances, whether it be singing, dancing or tributes to India were thoroughly enjoyed by the attendees. Apart from the entertainment, there were a huge range of activities on offer, including the Parramatta Eels’ hosting a ball throwing competition, face painting, bumper cars and other festival games. Many businesses presented their stalls to the attendees, meaning there was never a shortage of things that engaged the amazing crowd present.
Federation of Indian Associations of New South Wales (FIAN) is proud to have hosted this event with the support of Parramatta Council and businesses like Value World Travel, Western Union, State Bank of India, Air India, Multiconnexions, Telstra, Slim TV, SRK real estate, Bank of Baroda, and many others including media, especially Vikram Sharma from Voice of India-Monika Geet Mala and Arti Banga from Desi.com.au for their invaluable support and promotion.
