Diwali is here Image

By Shantelle-Ann Marquis

Docklands is set to celebrate the Indian festival of Diwali with a number of free events.

Diwali is the festival of lights that lasts five days, with the main festival falling on the third day. The festival is observed by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains who celebrate new beginnings, the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil.

The world Diwali translates as “row of lighted lamps” and is a time to recite prayers, share gifts and sweets, help the needy and decorate homes with candles and colourful lights.

From October 18 to 24, Docklands’ “Light House” will be displaying a 10-minute light show every hour, on the hour, for the whole family to enjoy.

Located at 888 Collins St, the building’s facade will display a state-of-the-art lighting installation from 6pm to midnight.

Library at The Dock is also hosting two free events.

On October 18 at 4.30pm, there will be a sweet-making workshop.

Participants will make Doodh Peda, a traditional Diwali sweet made from condensed milk, milk powder, butter and cardamom.

On October 20 at 1pm, there will be a one-hour Bollywood Dance workshop for all ages.
