Footscray Diwali is back bigger and better this year on Sunday 11 November 2018 from 1-9pm at the Footscray Boat Club, 40 Maribyrnong Blvd, Footscray. Get ready for one of the biggest, free, multicultural events that celebrates the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. Diwali is one of the most important festivals on the Indian calendar.
Filled with food stalls offering delicious food to sink your teeth into, along with refreshments, there's plenty to see and do at this event, including kids entertainment. There's the horse and pony rides, along with other games and activities like face painting, while the adults get into a bit of henna painting.
There's a live DJ and spacious dance floor to get those toes tapping to Bollywood music. Showcasing folk dance and live classical music, enjoy the elaborate and majestic display of fireworks at 9pm. If you're looking for a colourful and fun event to enjoy with family and friends, this could be it!
Treat your senses to the different tantalising flavours of Asia and shop for ethnic clothing, jewellery, accessories and so much more. There'll be a fine mix of traditions, colours, vibrancy and spirituality.
