Diwali Festival of Lights

Release Date: 2009-10-28

The celebration of Diwali has a variety of meanings in India and Nepal where it originated, among them the triumph of good over evil, the homecoming of various gods returning from battles, and the release of an array of innocent detainees. Being formally celebrated in SA for the first time, Diwali’s simplest meaning will no doubt have the most relevance — a celebration of inner light. On Sunday, as guests enjoy Indian food, music, and dancing, the San Antonio River will be illuminated with hundreds of floating tea lights followed by an explosion of fireworks above the Arneson River Theatre. Free, 6-8pm, Arneson River Theatre, 418 Villita St., (210) 212-6771
