Celebrating Diwali-Indian Festival of Lights
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 10:30 AM
Patea LibraryPlus is celebrating Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights, at 10.30am on Wednesday 26th October.
We’ll be enjoying some traditional Indian snack food and making some Diwali-inspired crafts for the adults.
India’s best-loved festival is an ancient Hindu festival that symbolises the triumph of light over darkness and the renewal of life. It is a time for celebration in India and by Indian diasporas abroad, with families lighting lamps, candles and fireworks to symbolise the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil.
Join us for fun, laughter and the chance to celebrate life in Patea.
Venue: Patea LibraryPlus
