FIA’s 24th year running, the Festival of Globe India Day Parade and Mela will be held on Aug. 13-14 in Fremont, Calif. There will be cultural programs, free health fair, food fest, kid’s corner, and a grand parade with famous Bollywood celebrities Gulshan Grover, Mahima Chaudhary, Randeep Hooda, Raima Sen, Prosenjit and others are slated to be present. People can visit, eat, and shop at over hundred booths. The admission is FREE for Mela and Parade for both the days.

Randeep Hooda is the star attraction and “Grand Marshal” in the parade this year to engage and entertain the community. Hooda has acted in many blockbuster movies in the recent past. A few of his smash hits are Sultan, Do Lafzon Ki Kahani, Sarbjit, Laal Rang, Main Aur Charles, Ungli, Rang Rasiya, and Kick. Randeep’s Haryanvi background is very well immersed in the movie Sultan, where he makes a great impression while acting along with Salman Khan.

Dr. Romesh Japra, Founder and Convener FOG, said, “Over the past 24 years, FOG has made great strides in including all parts of community and carrying out its mission to help communities better integrate. This year, the glamorous line up of movie stars includes Randeep Hooda, Gulshan Grover, Mahima Chaudhary, Raima Sen, Prosenjit and many others. Bollywood has proven to be a great way to teach Indian culture to youngsters.”

FOG Movie Fest is home to world movies and its mission is to empower and integrate global cultures and communities through film arts, performing arts, visual arts and folk arts. Many of the movies are World Premieres. Hundreds of filmmakers and stars will be present for Q&A and Red Carpet.

FOG Awards, Youth Empowerment, FOG Summit, FOG Fashion Fest, (Mela), Grand Parade are the key featured events that make FOG an unparalleled community event.
