India’s best loved festival, Diwali symbolises the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil and the renewal of life. To celebrate, families light small oil lamps (diyas) around the home and set off fireworks. Now you too can enjoy a taste of authentic Indian culture at Auckland's 11th Diwali Festival of Lights.
Bring along the whole family to sample the colours, sounds, tastes and spicy aromas of India. Highlights of the festival include delicious food stalls, traditional and contemporary dance and music, and beautiful rangoli displays.
