India is known for its vibrant and diverse culture, and one of the ways this diversity is celebrated is through parades. Parades in India often coincide with various festivals, cultural events, or national celebrations, and each state has its own unique traditions and customs associated with these parades. This year, the theme of parade is Cinema.
India has a rich and vibrant film industry, which produces the largest number of films in the world. Besides Bollywood, there are several regional film industries in different states of India that have their own distinct styles and contribute significantly to Indian cinema. Regional industries have unique storytelling, powerful performances, melodious music, and magnificent productions. Parade participating organizations will highlight some of the regional film industries and Bollywood.
This colorful cultural parade will give you India’s tour.
