Maritime Bhangra Group part of DiverseCity festival Sunday in Summeside
The Maritime Bhangra Group will perform in Summerside on Sunday.
The group brings a highenergy dance and audience interaction performance and donates its fee to cancer research.
It made headlines in 2016 for dancing bhangra on the rocks of Peggy’s Cove in Nova Scotia at the Canada 150th celebrations.
Namaste World and DiverseCity Multicultural Festival worked together to bring the group to Summerside.
Namaste World was created by immigrants as a tribute to fellow immigrants. Its purpose is to show life from an immigrant’s perspective and the challenges they face while starting life in a new country – where to live, where to work, learning a new language and more.
The group’s performance will be part of the DiverseCity festival, 2-10 p.m., at the Wyatt Heritage Properties.
Namaste World has set up a Go Fund Me campaign to accept donations at www.gofundme.com/prostatefundraiser-nw.
Charlottetown police say a woman did not wait around after being involved in a traffic accident Wednesday night, but police soon found her.
Officers were called to the scene at 11:31 p.m. Wednesday on Spring Park Road.
They went searching for the alleged hit and run vehicle and found it, along with the driver who allegedly displayed signs of being drunk. The accused female, a 20-year-old resident of Charlottetown, was arrested for impaired driving. She will be appearing in provincial court at a later date.
