India Day slated Sunday at Andover High

The India Association of Greater Boston is scheduled to celebrate India Day 2013 from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday in the Collins Center at Andover High School, 80 Shawsheen Road.

The event will feature Indian food, musical performances, classical, folk, and Bollywood dances, showcasing the rich cultural diversity of India. Admission is free.

The celebration, a tradition for more than two decades, was originally scheduled for Aug. 18 at the Hatch Shell along Boston’s Esplanade. However, it was rescheduled after the Boston Marathon bombing, which prompted city officials to require additional security at large public events.

If the India Association of Greater Boston had elected to hold the event in Boston this year, the group would have lost money, according to a statement released by organizers.

Musical performers will include students from the Berklee College of Music, LearnQuest Academy of Music, and New England Hindi Manch. One World Cuisine, a Boston restaurant group that specializes in Indian food, will be selling an array of dishes.
