The pageantry of the 30th annual India Day Parade filled the streets of Midtown Manhattan Sunday.

Hundreds of thousands of people lined Madison Avenue to watch the colorful floats and enjoy the music.

This year marked a turning point for the parade called the "World's Largest India Day Celebration".

For the first time, the South Asian Gay and Lesbian Association was allowed to march in the event.
