TRACY — A celebration of Diwali, the Indian festival of lights, will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the Grand Theatre, 715 Central Ave., Tracy, according to The Record newspaper in Stockton.
Filled with Indian music and dance along with a touch of Bollywood, the event will include a fashion show featuring modern and traditional outfits.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at www.atthegrand.org or at the Grand Theatre box office.
Diwali is as important to Hindus as Christmas is to Christians, and comes at the end of the harvest season, when Hindus seek blessings from Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. It marks a time of closing the financial books on the previous year and beginning a new financial year.
