Deepavali Fair 2014 at Parramatta Park Sydney Australia

Thousands of people gathered at Parramatta park to celebrate Diwali festival on 19/OCT/2014 from 11.00AM – 9.00PM.

The Indian Festival of Lights, is the most widely celebrated festival of the people from the Indian sub-continent and across the whole world. Deepavali means rows of lights, it is the festival symbolising victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance.

Though there are many mythological explanations to this wonderful festival, however, in the current world what the festival of lights really stands for is a reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to friend ship, religious tolerance, spreading the word of peace and harmony and above all, celebration of “simple joys of life”.
