Register your interest for Waitakere Diwali

Register your interest- Waitakere Rangoli.jpgThe Waitakere Indian Association has begun planning its Annual Diwali Mela with an appeal to intending participants to register their interest.

The event will be held at the Trusts Stadium in Henderson on October 17.

Stalls selling a host of items including food, entertainment and speeches will be a part of the daylong programme, which would begin at 11 am and conclude with fireworks at 1030 pm.

Association President Anand Naidu said the Mela aimed to bring together all communities and ethnic groups in Waitakere and other areas of the Auckland region.

“Diwali is the time to give, foster goodwill and understanding and enjoy with everyone in the society. We invite all ethnic groups to come together and celebrate the ‘Festival of Lights.’ The Mela will showcase India’s cultural and social heritage,” he said.

Mr Naidu said the Organising Committee was looking for music and dance performers, participants in the School Dancing Competition and Rangoli Competition, actors to stage ‘Ramayana,’ specialists to demonstrate Yoga, businesses to display and sell food and other items.

He said his Association was working with a number of government and non-government organisations to promote the event.

Further information can be obtained from him on 021-1088-592 or from Project Manager Sunil Chandra on 021-535333.
