Diwali (Festival of Lights) 2018 : A Multicultural Celebration. Diwali is celebrated every year in October through December, not only in India but all around. HIA has been celebrating this event since 2001. We have always welcomed everyone of all ages and backgrounds, with no barriers to attend. Youth presence and participation is actively promoted. There will be a mix of Indian and Scottish cultural activities, including Indian Classical Dance, Bollywood dance, Highland Dance, Gaelic singing and sporting activities. Mouth-watering Indian Cuisine will be provided. Diwali is a popular event and it has attained unique status in Highlands, with participants from Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Bahai and other communities.
There will be a Bag Pipe welcome.
