The Village Green at Arabian Ranches shimmered with the oriental lighting that adorned the community during the Festival of Lights on 9 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 and 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 blissful Diwali celebration.
