Punjabi Cultural Society of Chicago (PCS) participated in the NBC5 Travel Expo, presented by AAA, November 10th and 11th at the Chicago tourist attraction Navy Pier. This is the first time the Expo was held in Chicago. NBC has hosted it in other major U.S. cities.

Punjabi Cultural Society of Chicago (PCS) acquired a booth to represent India and manned it for two days. The theme was promoting travel to India.

“The P.C.S. booth was decorated with handicrafts, Indian tourist attractions posters, maps materials and handouts provided by India Tourism office New York, and Air India office,” said Mohinderjit Singh Saini the P.C.S. organizer.

“We are proud to participate in the American mainstream activities and promotion of our cultural heritage,” said Amarjit Kaur Atwal, P.C.S. president.

PCS also presented the colorful traditional Punjabi Bhangra dances at the main stage superbly performed by the P.C.S. associate groups.

“University of Chicago “Balle Bhangra”, Shamila Khetarpal’s “SARGAM” group, and Northwestern University Bhangra team were awesome,” said Rajinder Singh Mago.

Bhangra lessons were also given to the audience by Shamila Khetarpal and Rajinder Singh Mago.

Several other Asian American communities also participated including the Pakistani American Community, featuring models showcasing beautiful Pakistani clothes and music that were a mix of Eastern and Western styles and beats.

The entrance to the NBC5 Travel Expo was free. This fun-filled event featured hourly raffles and the cultural performances. Attendees enjoyed free fun activities such as a scuba pool, surfing simulator, a crazy obstacle course, a rock climbing wall, miniature golf and a jumbo jet activity center.
