Diwali Mela

Diwali Mela has become an annual signature event for the DFW Indian Cultural Society. This year's festival will be held Saturday, Nov. 4, in Fair Park's Cotton Bowl Stadium.

Diwali, the Hindu "festival of lights," is the best known of Hindu festivals and certainly the brightest. While there are many beliefs regarding this festival, the most popular one is that this day symbolizes the victory of good over evil.

Diwali Mela DFW will showcase the best of Indian culture. Explore booths of artisans making pottery and painting hands with henna. Savor mouth-watering foods from all parts of India. Watch the kids have fun with cultural activities designed specifically for them. Enjoy dance and musical performances (including award-winning Indian singer Richa Sharma) and a closing show of fireworks.
