The second phase of the program featured cultural program, songs and dance of variety presented by the artists of Louisville. RIFF band, a musical group of young rock artists, presented modern versions of songs by late Narayan Gopal. Although the stage for full scale dance was wanting, the artists as young as five years, Angila Karki, could dance with vigor and pomp.

“It was a very hard work of volunteers of BSK, that the program could come to this shape”, said Tika Adhikari, a board member and manager of the program.
A twenty-five member board was announced which includes nine officials: Jiwan Bista as President, Prem Sunuwar for vice-president, Vinod Poudel for secretary and Puspa Dhakal as treasurer. Five coordinators include Bhim Koirala for public relations, Krishna Dhakal for volunteer management, Mitra Subedi for elderly and women support, Tulsi Rai for sports and Rajesh Subba for culture.

Out from the hall, some whispers could be heard aloud, “this time BSK did a well managed program.” Similarly, a Losar program was also organized by Buddhist community of Louisville.
