Western Australia will light up with fireworks, dancing and a kaleidoscope of colour as Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, is celebrated in spectacular style.
The Indian festival, which symbolises the victory of good over evil, has become one of WA's most popular celebrations with thousands of people from all backgrounds attending events across the State.
The McGowan Government is proud to have funded many of the large celebrations taking place around Western Australia, including:
Parliament House will also be floodlit in orange for Diwali and to recognise the achievements and contributions of Western Australia's Indian communities.
Premier Mark McGowan has wished Western Australian Indian communities a very happy Diwali.
"Diwali is one of the most spectacular festivals on our cultural calendar, bringing community spaces to life with lively music, entertainment and celebration," said the Premier.
"Our Diwali celebrations are growing every year and, as my Government works to establish direct flights between India and Perth, I look forward to our Indian neighbours joining us to celebrate Diwali in Western Australian style in the future."
