Diwali Festival fun at Willowdale | gallery

Residents were in for a treat at the weekend with Willowdale’s Diwali Festival.

The festival, based on the Hindu Festival of Light, saw attendees impressed by Bollywood dance workshops, lantern-decorating stations, traditional food, cultural music and Henna tattoos.

Kids were delighted by activities including jumping castles, face-painting, an inflatable slide and balloon art.

The event coincided with Willowdale’s community fun day to celebrate the opening of the new Willowdale Shopping Centre, which launched on Wednesday.

Willowdale is a Stockland-owned housing estate located off Camden Valley Way at Denham Court.
