Diwali - the Indian Festival of Lights
Diwali in Christchurch has grown significantly in last few years and the event is now attended by thousands of people. This Saturday, the CBS Canterbury Arena will be transformed into little India.
This fabulous family event shows off everything the Indian culture has to offer, from Indian dance, music, yoga, fashion, art, to a barrage of aromatic Indian cuisine. A highlight of the festival this year will be the Auckland-based 50/50 Dance Crew. Their modern take on Bollywood dance is described as "hip hop meets Bhangra meets Bollywood".
