Diwali is a major festival for Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains, who believe that light is a metaphor for knowledge and signifies health, wealth and peace. All ages are welcome to take part in the folk art festivities, which will include a dance performance and a hands-on art project where you can paint your own diya representing sakshi, the divine inner light.
