DIWALI Celebrations on Leicester's Gold Mile

Rangoli Pattern Die and Little Diva's

Last Wednesday, my children and I took a trip along the Melton Road, awash with sights and sounds of a Happy Divali night. The lights shone bright, and the street filled with beautiful music and drumming. Children took great delight in dropping fun snaps onto the road, crackling amongst the crowds. After a wonderful fireworks display, the 30,000 crowd poured back onto the street to celebrate in little restaurants and to shop.
The textile designer in me, was treated to patterns a plenty. Beautiful saris making colourful displays.

oh did I mention the food? Well, that's another story!
