Diwali, the festival of lights, will be celebrated with much fervour across India. However, the occasion is also being celebrated in several countries.

Ahead of Diwali 2020, Dubai’s diverse neighbourhoods, shopping malls and landmarks are illuminated in a wonderful display of colour, lights and revelry. Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE) has organized several events for different communities.

“Dubai’s traditional Diwali celebrations really capture the fun, family-focused and cosmopolitan charm of the city.
