Our Wellington centre joined the Namaste Wellington festival – celebrating Diwali 2020 at the Kilbirnie Indian Temple.
Holding a promotional table meant people got to find out about our English service, while giving a wonderful view of the dancers and performers!
Run by the Wellington Indian Association on Saturday, 31 October, the free community event included wonderful cultural performances, Indian market stalls, traditional food, henna and fun activities for kids.
The Association notes: ‘Diwali is a significant festival dedicated to the triumph of light over darkness, goodness over evil and knowledge over ignorance’ which is a very apt sentiment for these troubled times.
Our ELP Welly team and their whanau enjoyed watching the performances, sampling delicious food and even came home with some henna tattoos!
