On behalf of my colleagues on City Council, I want to extend my warmest welcome to everyone attending the Diwali Festival.
Vancouver prides itself on its diverse, multicultural community, which stands as a pillar of our city’s economic and social life. Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, has become an anticipated tradition for all Vancouverites. This family-friendly celebration includes many opportunities to learn about the diverse cultures who celebrate Diwali and brings people together to reflect on the symbolism of light within our community.
I want to welcome everyone to the festivities and may the shining spirit of Diwali illuminate the City of Vancouver and its people during this special time.
