Amazing culture and fun in the heart of San Diego.
San Diego Diwali Mela festival in Balboa Park.
The annual San Diego Diwali Mela was held today in Balboa Park. Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights, a cultural celebration which affirms the ultimate victory of light over darkness.
My Saturday walk through Balboa Park included a few minutes at the colorful festival, where I enjoyed upbeat music and entertainment, and resisted the temptation to devour all the tasty-looking Indian food.
Everyone appeared to be enjoying the Diwali Mela. A little research indicates that I missed a Bollywood Dance company performance. Perhaps I’ll catch it next year!
I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk! You can enjoy even more Cool San Diego Sights by following me on Facebook or Twitter!
