diwali, this saturday (13/10)
diwali or the festival of lights, is celebrated this year, at federation square, on saturday, 13 october 2007. i am however informed that diwali itself is actually not this weekend, but at a later date. i expect the entire day to be a grand photographic opportunity, and a great way to sample indian food-stuff.
things to look out for are the traditional dances from noon onwards, all the stalls, and in the early evening, fireworks on the yarra! apparently, even some iconic melbourne buildings will be illuminated for diwali as well.
a tad ironic, as the big switch off, just happened last week!
