A big fire burned outside the Gurdwara Sahib Temple on Peach Avenue on Thursday evening as part of its Lohri celebration.

 The festivities, which commonly include bonfires, once were reserved for weddings and births. Although that is still the case for many families, said Councilman Gurpal Samra, the revelry has become an annual event for everyone to take part in when Jan. 13 rolls around.
