July 26, 2015 - India Day Parade on Oak Tree Road in Edison / Iselin this year is scheduled for Sunday, August 9, 2015.
India Day Parade is organized annually to celebrate India's Independence Day on August 15.
India Day Parade will start around 1:30PM at the intersection of Oak Tree Road and Cinder Road (behind Lincoln Technical Institute) in Edison and go down Oak Tree Road and end at Middlesex Ave in Iselin.
There will be a few floats depicting the culture of India as part of the parade.
Get there early because parking in the Oak Tree Road area is bound to be tight.
Several years ago, the annual India Day Parade became an annual source of controversy when dueling Indian-American groups began fighting over permits for the summer festival on Oak Tree Road, a mostly South-Asian neighborhood straddling the border of Edison and the Iselin section of Woodbridge.
The conflict came to a head in 2011, when the Oak Tree Indian Business Association got a parade permit from Edison and the India Business Association got a permit from Woodbridge.
The parades were on the same day, so each group held its parade on either side of the border as many from the sidelines shook their heads in disbelief.
Opps. Its empty!!
