SOUTH BROUNSWICK, NJ – The Indo-American Cultural Foundation of Central Jersey (IACFNJ) once again organized its Grand Navratri Garba in South Brunswick on September 23, 29 and 30 at South Brunswick High School in Monmouth Junction, New Jersey.

The Navratri celebration marked the festival of nine nights during which Hindus worship Goddess of Shakti Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati.

IACFNJ held this year’s Garba in a state-of-the-art gymnasium at South Brunswick High School in a highly-secured environment where more than 6,000 people enjoyed the three days of colorful festivities to mark the cultural and religious significance of Navratri for Hindus.

The response of South Asians from North Brunswick, Franklin Park, Princeton, Hightstown, Princeton Junction, Monroe, East Brunswick, Robbinsville and East and West Windsor was very overwhelming. But the organizers did an outstanding job to process everyone as quickly as possible, so that everyone can enjoy five hours of garba, raas and sanedo.

The local business entrepreneurs, community leaders, local and state public officials and large number of Asian Indians attended the celebration to support IACFNJ community efforts to keep Indian culture and heritage alive in the state.

New Jersey’s 16th Legislative District Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker who is also a resident of South Brunswick; Laurie Poppe, Senate Candidate for Legislative District 16; Middlesex County Freeholder Shanti Narra and South Brunswick School Board Member Azra Baig were among the special guests who attended the event.

IACFNJ plans to hold Diwali Party on November 3 at Ember Restaurant in South Brunswick.
