On behalf of The Divya Jyoti Association, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to The Grand Diwali Motorcade 2018, Havan and Cultural Show, in Richmond Hill, Queens NY on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018.
The festivities begin at 3:00pm on The Arya Spiritual Center Grounds which is located at 104-44 133 Street, Richmond Hill, NY. The “Puja & Havan” ceremony are devotional offerings to The Goddess of Light, Lakshmi.
Then at 5:30pm, we get ready for The Grand Diwali Motorcade starting at 133rd Street and Liberty Ave which travels down to 123rd Street. The Diwali Motorcade comes to a circular conclusion in front of Sybils on 133 St & Liberty Ave where floats will be judged to win cash prizes!
The Diwali Motorcade has become a highly anticipated major cultural event within the Indo-Caribbean community in Queens, NY. We will have participants illuminate their vehicles to celebrate our Hindu Festival of Lights.
At 7:30pm, we return to The Arya Spiritual Center Grounds for our FREE Grand Cultural Show.
Diwali is an auspicious event in the Hindu calendar. We do hope you can join the many thousands who will participate in this grand occasion. We would be pleased and honored to have your organization participate in this year’s parade.
