Vancouver Celebrates Diwali has wrapped up its 2012 festival. There will be little activity on this site for a while, but we’ll be sure to come back strong in 2013 as we set the stage for our exciting 10th anniversary celebrations.
It took us a little while to assemble, but we’re ready to show off our amazing promotional video from the recent Diwali Downtown at the 2012 Vancouver Celebrates Diwali Festival. We’ll be using this video for when we start to promote next year’s 10th anniversary event, and we’re sure you’ll agree that this is an impressive showcase of the marvelous event we produced this year. A special thanks to DJ A-SLAM for letting us use his music, and to our amazing videographer Michael Sider for shooting and editing this amazing piece.
The Diwali Celebration Society was nominated for a Provincial Nesika Award for Multiculturalism, and was honored to be there for the ceremony this evening. Board directors Gurpreet Sian (pictured) and Opreet Kang were present along with Festival Producer Sean Devine (pictured). Thanks to Mo Dhaliwal, chair of the Multicultural Advisory Council, for nominating, and to Minister John Yap, Responsible for multiculturalism, for hosting.
