The Fylde Coast Hindu Society’s first ever Asian Festival held on the Blackpool Tower Headland has been hailed a big success. The free event held on Sunday 2nd July celebrated the life of Krishna celebrating one of the Hindu Gods, Lord Krishna, while offering family fun and activities including henna, flute music, games and dancing. Many local Asian Groups are worked together to create a very special ‘festival of colour’, ‘festival of summer’ and ‘festival of love’, also signifying the importance of good over evil and it’s a time to end disputes with others.
Hailing the first festival a great success, Chirag Khajuria, Chair of the Society said that Sunday’s Festival is the start of something special. The Mayor of Blackpool, Councillor Gillian Campbell (seen in featured photograph), who attended the event, spoke about Festival’s positive impact on Community Cohesion saying : “As a first ever Asian Event in Blackpool, I would hope it will go from strength to strength and help integrate different communities together.’
