Diwali, also known as Deepavali, is one of the most significant and widely celebrated festivals in India and by Indian communities around the world. It is a multi-day Hindu festival that typically lasts for five days, with the main festivities occurring on the third day. The festival usually falls in October or November each year, depending on the Hindu lunar calendar.
Diwali is often referred to as the "Festival of Lights" because it represents the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil.
Our Aspire Tarneit North centre was thrilled to celebrate Diwali again this year, and on Friday 3rd of November, they held a Diwali Disco Night where they invited their families and the community to the centre to celebrate together.
It was a great evening with traditional dancing, music entertainment, face painting, henna, and lots of delicious food. Everyone was dressed up in their traditional outfits and had a blast dancing with their family and others.
It was amazing to see all the different cultures of our families coming together to celebrate. Thank you to all our communities for sharing this special celebration of Diwali with us.
