Our Stories: Celebrate Diwali With The Indian Community

Event Description:

Join your neighbors at the Our Stories series celebrating Johnston residents from around the globe.
In November, we are excited to partner with the Indian community in Johnston to celebrate Diwali or Deepavali as it's called in southern India, a Hindu festival of lights that signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. This Our Stories event will feature a dance performance by Eshanjali Dance Academy, Mehendi or Henna with Smita Ashok, Diwali crafts, as well as Indian people from the Des Moines Metro area sharing their life experiences. Did we mention there will be food? Come hungry so you can sample the flavors of India while you get to know your neighbors. This is an all ages event and registration is appreciated to help us plan for food quantities.
