Mayor Crombie Marks Lohri

“On behalf of the City of Mississauga and Members of Council, I would like to offer my best wish to our City’s vibrant, active and engaged Punjabi community, on the joyous occasion of Lohri.

“Lohri is an historic, meaningful and much anticipated celebration in recognition of the winter solstice.

“Families, friends and loved ones, in communities throughout the world, will come together by gathering around bonfires, and join in traditional song and dance festivities.

“In Mississauga, diversity is one of our biggest strengths. We are blessed to be the destination of choice for so many people looking to make Canada their home.
