On October 26th , the Indian Student Association of SLU held the annual Garba, Raas, Bhangra Night. It is a commemoration of the nine-day Hindu festival Navaratri. Garba and Raas are traditional folk dances that are done during this time. The dances take place around an image of the goddess Durga placed in the middle of the area. The dances show respect and honor to her, in the hope of receiving good boons and a prosperous year ahead.  Attendance was 1,200-1,300 people.
