Diwali is one of my very holidays celebrated in Irvine.
One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. It is celebrated with spectacular light displays and colorful garlands, and the exchange gifts and sweets. It is a time for rejoicing and renewal, and ridding oneself of hate, anger, and jealousy.
This year marks the fifth annual Diwali Fest in Irvine, and the very first to be held at the Great Park!
