Diwali Festival

I attended the Diwali Festival (festival of light) in New York City at South Street Seaport on October 2, 2011.

I was impressed by the children’s activity tent. They offered cultural activities such as goddess coloring pages and paint your own diya. Diyas are typically made of clay with Ghee or oil used as the fuel and cotton wool as the wick.  See DLTK for directions on how to make diyas with kids.
