As the date of our May 14th, 2011 Hamilton and May 15th Stoney Creek South Asian Heritage Celebration draws closer, you can find two new articles in our local Hamilton Spectator and Stoney Creek News.
The local South Asian Heritage Association is hosting a celebration of the subcontinent’s rich cultural heritage this Saturday.
The event, timed to coincide with South Asian Heritage Month, will feature food, fashion, song and dance from several nations, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Community members have an opportunity to enhance their understanding of the culture, heritage and traditions of the South Asian community, as part of South Asian Heritage Month.
“South Asian Heritage Month celebrates the diverse cultures of countries in the South Asian subcontinent, including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and other countries,” said South Asian Heritage Association of Hamilton and Region committee supporter Khursheed Ahmed.
“Activities include cultural programs, dances, music and food presentations.” The main event in Stoney Creek is Bhena de Mela (Ladies Day) on Sunday, May 15 at 1 p.m. at the Grand Olympia Hospitality and Convention Centre.
