Diwali is the most widely celebrated Indian festival and marks the victory of good over evil and the beginning of the New Year in India.  The word “Diwali” literally means “a row of lights”.  The event will feature crafts, face painting, Henna, food, and Indian music in a festive atmosphere.

The participants will get a chance to learn a few basic steps of Punjabi folk dance, Bhangra.
