Time Out says
Celebrate Deepavali, a.k.a. Diwali, with more than 100,000 revelers at one of the largest culturally Indian events in the city. Feast on regional specialties; browse clothing, crafts and jewelry; and catch performances from top intercollegiate dance teams during the Naach Inferno competition. Take part in one of the planet's largest outdoor bhangra parties in history, led by Sarina Jain. The "festival of lights," which commemorates the end of Hindu king and deity Rama’s 14 years of exile, culminates in a dazzling fireworks display.
