“Diwali is a celebration of the triumph of light over darkness and hope over fear. Our festival exemplifies the spirit of hope through unity, with a multicultural parade featuring a diverse range of participants. We want to welcome all of Scotland to come and share in the fun and excitement at Edinburgh Diwali”
