Diwali (Festival Of Lights) Celebrated By BP Katz

Queens Borough President Katz held her second annual Diwali celebration at Queens Borough Hall on Wednesday, November 4. The event was attended by about 200 people from different faiths who came together in the spirit of Diwali, an ancient South Asian festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil (symbolized by light overcoming darkness). The Borough President extended Happy Diwali greetings to all in attendance and to the entire diverse community of 2.3 million people who live in “The World’s Borough.” Katz is seen here singing our National Anthem at the start of the festivities.
