This past Saturday, the Canada India Friendship Association held its annual Eid-Diwali-Christmas Celebration at Knox United Church. Vibrant colours and aromatic spices filled the church as hundreds of guests celebrated with music, dance, food and friendship. Diwali, a Hindu festival also known as the Festival of Lights, is celebrated every autumn and is one of the largest festivals in India. The festival spiritually signifies the triumph of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil and hope over despair. It is also well represented in the small prairie city of Brandon. Here is a selection of images from the event.
