The lawn behind Springs 15 at Emirates Living shimmered with the oriental lighting that adorned the community during the Festival of Lights on 10 November. Residents from all over the neighbourhood made the most of the opportunity to showcase their vivid array of traditional attires, while henna stalls allowed those who were less familiar with the festival to experience its delicate artistry.
The Rangoli competition saw a mind-boggling variety of brilliant patterns come to life, as sumptuous boxes of Diwali sweets awaited the winners and participants. The event also featured boisterous performances by traditional dancers as well as dhol players, who had the crowd on their toes throughout the evening.
As the hours slipped by and the evening drew to a close, the radiant residents made their way back to their homes at the end of an eventful Diwali celebration.
