Today the 33rd annual India Day Parade made its way down Madison Avenue.

The parade, which is aligned with India's day of independence from British rule, saw at least two mayoral candidates: City Council Speaker Christie Quinn (photo #2) and John Catsimatidis. Bollywood actress Vidya Balan was the parade's grand marshall, and the procession featured dozens of floats.
