Delicious Indian food will be served throughout the day on various streets and visitors can be marked with a "tikka" (a traditional red dot on the forehead, symbolising protection).
The Diwali Festival will feature performances by Indian instrumental groups, while dance troops will demonstrate their Bollywood moves.
Children can try their hand at making their own Diwali light or drawing on a henna tattoo, while adults are free to wander through the Diwali market and pick up some Indian treasures!
