For the first time this year the CICS collaborated with The Abbotsford Heat for a hockey game to celebrate the festival of Vasakhi on April 4th. Thousands of people turned up, mostly wearing traditional Indian clothes with a view to share in the Vasakhi celebrations in our community. CICS had set up an information booth and they also had volunteers applying henna on game attendees. Punjabi dancing Bhangra group also mesmerized the audiences with their energetic performance. The game was tagged as Punjabi Night Abbotsford. The Heat management would like to host such a night every year to show their love for community and to build community partnerships.
