Indian Americans Of Lexington Celebrate Diwali


11/08/2018

On October 20th, the Lexington High School was decked up for the Indian Americans of Lexington’s (IAL) 23rd celebration of Indian festival of lights, Diwali. It was an evening of cultural immersion with the venue teeming with over 800 residents from in and around Lexington.

 Key highlight for the evening was “making an environmental difference while celebrating” focused on waste reduction and going green. IAL went digital with the flyers and collaborated with food vendors to serve food in compostable or recyclables wares. Our two Zero Waste Stations filled five compostable bins while barely filling trash and recyclables - big win for the evening.

 Main attraction for the evening was the two-part cultural program of dance, music and drama It was truly diverse with performances spread across participants of Indian origin to those from other cultures. In addition, IAL sponsored professionally done Henna and Face Painting for kids and kids at heart. Vendors selling Indian clothing, jewelry, and decors lit the hallway with their colorful offerings. Sponsor tables were arranged around the hall providing details on their products and services. Attendees flocked to the wide variety of mouthwatering street food looking for second helpings. By way of giving back to the community, IAL donated a portion of its proceeds to the Lexington Food Pantry and the Douglas House, Lexington.

 Senator Cindy Freeman, prominent town leaders and officials were part of the festivities. To over 55 youth and adult volunteers that worked tirelessly behind the scenes we offer our deepest gratitude. We are thankful and proud of being part of this vibrant community.

 Shubh Diwali from all of us at IAL. May the festival of lights brighten your life and uplift your spirits!
