Indian Americans for Burlington (IAB) participated in the Annual "Burlington Pride Parade" sponsored by American Legions. This is the second time in the history of Burlington that Indian community has proudly paraded along the side of Burlington community in the streets of Burlington, holding IAB banner and dancing to Bollywood music.
The Burlington Pride Parade started at 335 Cambridge Street at 11: 00 AM and marched on the Cambridge Street and Winn Street to Memorial School covering a distance of about 2 miles. Different groups and organizations came with their banners, floats, decorated vehicles, music bands and costumes to participate in the parade. About 30 Indian residents participated in the parade wearing traditional Indian outfits that added extra color to the parade. In addition, we had a Rath Yatra which was coordinated by ISKCON.

Other IAB members included the Bhallas, Debs, Jetras, Patels, Shahs, Saigals, Thakkars and Vorungantis. And, of course, we thank all the other participants and ISKCON for providing the prasad amd making this a success.
