There's plenty to do for kids at Diwali Fest NJ.

Looking for a fun activity for your crafty kiddo? Come to Diwali Fest and make your own Rangoli, which are traditional geometric designs intended to evoke the divine feminine and invite goodness and prosperity to your household.

At the festival, kids will be able to create their own mini Diya (Diwali Lamp) out of clay and decorate it with beads and other knickknacks.

Vinay is trained in Hindustani classic music, vocal/harmonium and tabla in the US and in India.
