Diwali 2017 – @Federation Square – Melbourne


14th Oct 2017

Diwali 2017 – organised by Celebrate India.  was celebrated in Melbourne at Federation Square on 14th Oct 2017 on a temporary stage, as the original stage is undergoing renovation. The festival draws a great crowd every year and the numbers are increasing as the Indian population in Victoria keeps growing from over 111,000 in 2011 to over 169,000 in 2016. Few pics of the event up to 7 PM – had to attend another event.
