DirectRooms.com Participate the Diwali Festival in New Zealand During 8 to 9 October 2011


DirectRooms.com welcomes the 2011 Festival of Diwali to Auckland, New Zealand. Known as the Hindu Festival of Light, Diwali will take place this year between the 8th and 9th of October.

Auckland, New Zealand, September 14, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Diwali is one of the most important festivals in the Hindu calendar and celebrates the rule of good over evil. In New Zealand, the goddess Lakshmi (also known as the Goddess of light, beauty and wealth) is venerated as part of the festival celebrations.

2011 will be the 10th year that Auckland has celebrated the festival and the party will take place at the Aotea Square and the Aotea Centre. The celebration will include a Bollywood dance competition, food stalls and a finale on Sunday incorporating an enormous fireworks display.

The city will be lit by small oil lamps known as "diyas." The celebration is viewed as a multi-cultural festival and all visitors to the city are encouraged to participate.

Auckland is officially New Zealand’s city offering a selection of Auckland City Centre hotels to suit all tastes and budgets during this busy season. Auckland is said to have the best public transport network in New Zealand, so visitors will not have any trouble reaching Antae Square, which is just off Queen Street.

The Rugby World Cup quarterfinals will also be taking place at this time, so the Diwali Festival’s message of luck and joy will form a suitable backdrop.
