GOPIO Gold Coast Hosts Diwali 2023
GOPIO Gold Coast hosted an outdoor Diwali Fair event on Sunday, November 19th, 2023. The celebration was a great success with over 1000 attendees, including many invited dignitaries.
Broadwater Parklands was buzzing with a multitude of stalls, food trucks, and activities for the families to enjoy. Attendees browsed stalls displaying Indian jewellery, ethnic costumes, and home décor while children enjoyed free access to a balloon twister and henna tattoos.
The crowd was entertained throughout the event with a mix of Bollywood beats, cultural stage performances, and our rocking DJ Ashu. The Gold Coast skyline was lit up in the true spirit of Diwali with a phenomenal eco-friendly laser show to conclude the evening festivities. The Gold Coast City Council supported the event.
