The Deepavali Festival Village 2018 is being held from 28 September to 6 November from 10 am to 10 pm. Held in conjunction with the Deepavali Street Light-up, this festive bazaar has stall which sell colourful, ornate decorations, festive treats and sweet delicacies.
We paid a visit to the Deepavali Festival Village 2018 along Campbell Lane, next to the Indian Heritage Centre. While the bazaar area isn’t large, it does offer a variety of festive sights and sounds.
If you are at the Deepavali Festival Village, consider visiting the Indian Heritage Centre’s latest exhibition Chetti Melaka of the Straits: Rediscovering Peranakan Indian Communities too. This exhibition tells the story of a lesser known Peranakan community, the Chetti Melaka.
