The festivities include traditional dance performances, a number of outdoor entertainment activities for children as well as an evening of colorful fireworks. Admission is free!

Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the Hindu calendar. It is commonly referred to as the Festival of Lights, which symbolizes enlightenment and good over evil. This is a time when families come together to celebrate and a time of goodwill and charity.

Diwali is actually a combination of two festivals celebrated over a number of days. One is a reflection on the end of the Hindu calendar year and the other aspect is starting off the New Year on the right foot. So bring your family and friends to the BAPS Diwali Celebration on Saturday, November 9.
