Pohela Boishakh by andycoleborn

Pohela Boishakh

Had to work on a Saturday!!! Well, wasn't really too bad... As all I had to do was attend our Pohela Boishakh celebrations (or Benagli New Year party) and take photos.

Today was another glorious Spring day and it certainly brought out the crowds - about 400 people attended today's event, which we hold each year to mark a time of much celebration in Bangledesh and West Bengal in India.

Our party is aimed at bringing people together and celebrating all our various festivals and traditions. We had many activities, much food and entertainment, face painting and more...

This little girl was one of the dancers, I like this photo, even though it's not perfectly crisp, but she was moving around sooo fast..!!

thanks everyone - I was waiting for her to move infront of the blue screen but she spent ages dancing in front of a horrible background.. when she eventually moved forward, she only stayed there for a few seconds so I was quite lucky to get a half decent photo...
