India Day canceled over security costs

Boston’s annual India Day celebration will not return to the Charles River Esplanade this Saturday after the higher cost of increased security imposed since the Marathon bombings forced organizers to cancel the event.

The event appears to be the highest-profile Esplanade gathering to be canceled as a result of the additional, costly security required by the Department of Conservation and Recreation and Massachusetts State Police following the Boston Marathon bombings. India Day has been held for some 20 years, organizers say, and more than 10,000 people have attended in years past.
