A variety of activities that bring happiness and joy to all visitors

Guests will enjoy traditional celebrations and browse the vibrant Diwali-themed bazaar with decorative candles, jewelry, and gifts. Custom-made traditional arched entrances will greet guests as they arrive and will be greeted with a tilak and mala garland while tabla music is played in the background.

The elaborately decorated main stage will be the focal point of the night market, with performances taking part throughout each evening such as kathak dancing, garba and bhangra, as well as a DJ and Bollywood dance workshops.

Children will be entertained with a puppet show, flower lamp making, and Diwali greeting card craft stations. Giant floating dia lamps in the Capital Park pond will add to the festive ambiance, while food vendors serve up delicious savory and sweet food from live cooking stations.
