PBIA has found a unique way to recreate the excitement and magic of the Diwali season by organizing this event and hopes to create an awareness among the entire community of India’s rich culture and tradition.

HIGHLIGHTS OF DIWALI MELA 2015

PBIA celebrated Diwali with its community members by organizing Diwali Mela – An Indian Carnival on Sunday, November 1st, 2015 at the Amara Shrine Fields. It was an all afternoon event which provided entertainment for children and adults and was free for everyone to attend. An art content was organized where children throughout the community were encouraged to send us their entries and prizes were awarded to the winners on the day of the event. A Rangoli competition was held on the day of the event where teams of 2-4 people were invited to create their own designs that were eventually judged and prizes were awarded to the winners. There were hay rides, pony rides, bounce houses and several carnival style games for children to keep them entertained. Adults were busy getting Henna tattoos or taking pictures at the Indian themed photo booths. The event would not be complete without a variety of delicious Indian food and desserts that was sold by various food vendors. Diwali Mela proved to be a highly successful event that offered something interesting for everyone and also achieved the goal of bringing the community together.
