Families gather for camaraderie, unity, and love at this year’s Diwali festivities

Madhu Madhavan, Center for Asian and Pacific Studies founding chairman at San Diego State University, is the organizer of the annual Diwali festival in Balboa Park. This year the festivities will be celebrated on Saturday, October 22, in remembrance of the holiday he experienced in India. He reminisced about the festival, saying, “We would get up early, and before sunrise we would oil the body, take a bath, and wear new clothes.”

This year’s Diwala festival hopes to bind Indian families to the values that seek to unite humanity by promoting activities that inspire love and peace. Tickets are available at $5 per family, and people have the option to learn more about said festivities when they visit the San Diego Museum of Art and Mingei International Museum the same day.
