Mar­itime Bhangra Group part of Di­verseCity fes­ti­val Sun­day in Summe­side

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

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 at­fundraiser-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.
