The festival is going to take place on Sunday, November 4, 2018 at the resort and it will run under the theme ‘Come and experience the real India in Uganda’.

A lot of India’s mouth watering traditional foods will be available for the revelers’ satisfaction.

Gates will be open at exactly 12 pm and as part of the celebration, there will be fireworks at 7:30 pm.

India’s Diwali is a five day celebration that occurs in autumn each year, following the cycle of the moon, in either October or November.

Diwali is one of the most interesting and beautiful festivals in the world. The ‘Festival of Lights’ was traditionally a Hindu celebration but is now also celebrated by Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains.

The fest is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Rama from 14 years of Exile and his victory over the Demon Ravana.

Hindus regard it as a celebration of life and use the occasion to strengthen family and relationships. In some parts of India, it marks the beginning of the new year.

The event is proudly sponsored by Delhi Public School International, Ruparelia Foundation, Kampala Casino and The Pyramids.
