CATNZ was contracted by the Wellington City Council to pull together the now iconic Diwali Festival of Lights. This was a two day celebration starting with a Diwali Garba Dandiya - a traditional, interactive folk dance that got everyone joining in. On the second day was the Diwali Mela, an exotic combination of delicious food stalls, traditional, classical and contemporary performance from across the regions of India, and of course the ever popular Bollywood Competition!
This event was attended by an estimated 30,000 people
