India Day Parade in Edison split in 2 by rival business owners

A feud between two rival groups of Indian business owners has led to a bitter battle over who should put on the India Day Parade

EDISON - A feud between two rival groups of Indian business owners has led to a bitter battle over who should put on the India Day Parade in Edison and Woodbridge.

For the past seven years, the parade marched down Oak Tree Road through Woodbridge and Edison. Now, the finger pointing continues and the parade has been split in two.

The Edison Group is scrambling to put on its own parade, which will begin at Grove Avenue. But, it's forbidden from crossing Wood Avenue, where the Woodbridge parade begins. The parades start at almost the same time and nearly 40,000 expected spectators will have to choose sides in an event meant to honor one culture.

The parades will be Sunday afternoon beginning at around 1 p.m. and News 12 New Jersey will bring you highlights.
