Over the past two weeks, I have been honoured to be so warmly welcomed at many Diwali/Deepavali Festival celebrations by members of our multicultural community! It was brilliant to see so many of my parliamentary colleagues celebrating the festival as well, including Mr Steven Marshall MP, State Liberal Leader.
One of the most vibrant and widely celebrated festivals for the Indian community, it is held in the southern hemisphere as the seasons change into spring. Community members celebrate the 'victory' of light over darkness and look forward to prosperity and good things to come - a wonderful sentiment which I believe all South Australians want for themselves and our state!
Thank you to the organisations who allowed me to celebrate with them!
