The Golden Om Dharmic Youth Organisation has a number of activities planned to celebrate Phagwah.

The organisation’s Phagwah Mela and Bazaar will be held today at the Rose Hall Community Centre (welfare ground) East Canje, Berbice from 3 pm.

A release said that the “peak” of the event will be a “breathtaking programme which will feature finalists and top performers of the recently and previously held ‘Emerging Voices’ competition.”

Members of the Golden Om Dharmic Youth Organisation pose with trophies they won at a past event.

They include Karamchand Sugrim, Tejyas Singh and Aamir Khan.

Also performing will be Guyanese singer Sadhna Outar and other local artists. The Golden Om Dharmic Dance group will entertain attendees with what it said will be a “number of spectacular dances choreographed by the talented and vibrant dancers by the youth group. There will also be a dramatic piece by the skillful youths of the organisation.”

In addition, at this fun event, there will be a katahar curry competition, participants will be cooking on spot and will be judged.

There will also be numerous food stalls with “delicious, finger licking and traditional sweet meats on sale, face painting and mehendi booths, games and Phagwah items.”
