A colorful display celebrating the Deepavali festival of lights will soon beam inside the Cranberry Township Municipal Center.

Community members will create a Rangoli, a traditional piece of Indian art, beginning at 6 p.m. Tuesday, November 6 in the Municipal Center Square. Members of the Cranberry Township Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Advisory (IDEA) Team are hosting the event.

The creation will help celebrate Deepavali - also referred to as Diwali or Divali - a five-day festival of lights celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains across the world. 

Deepavali symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and good over evil.

Created with rice flour and sand and featuring geometric shapes, flowers, petals, and deity impressions, Rangoli are created to welcome Goddess Lakshmi, welcome guests and bring good luck.

Light snacks will be served.
