On Saturday, Oct. 15, the City of Takoma Park celebrated Diwali with a cosponsored event in Langley Plaza. The other main sponsors were Prince George’s County Councilmember Deni Tavaras and the Takoma/Langley Crossroads Development Authority. The Hindu Temple of Metropolitan Washington and Sri Siva Vishnu temple provided traditional and contemporary Indian dance, music, poetry and culture.

Diwali is the annual Hindu festival of lights, which celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, hope over despair.

  1. “The Takoma/Langley Sector is the famously ugly strip-mall-plex blighting the intersection of University and New Hampshire Avenues. The southern half of that intersection is in Takoma park’s Ward 6 (Montgomery County). The other half is in unincorporated Prince George’s County. PG County and Montgomery County together (sort of) are developing the area.”
