Diwali on the Parade

A day of spectacular Diwali celebrations will run for the second year in a row on Sunday 25 October as part of Watford Borough Council’s Big Events series.

It promises to be a cultural feast, with a range of free activities taking place throughout the day.

Along The Parade people will be encouraged to join in the fun, with Diwali themed workshops, arts and crafts, and a night parade.

Community groups will perform musical sessions and dance influenced by various regions across India.

Visitors can take a break from the action by visiting the unique Diwali Market, where they can purchase food, crafts, clothing and gifts.

As darkness hits, the Festival of Light celebration will bring everyone together in a procession along The Parade to the event space and pond. Members of the public, who last year turned out in their hundreds, are encouraged to join in with tea lights and lanterns.

At the pond the event will be brought to a breathtaking end with a flame and pyrotechnics display set to Indian classical music.

For those who want the festivities to continue, Watford Palace Theatre is then hosting the ever popular Diwali Celebration event."
