STREAMING ON ZOOM
On Saturday, November 7, Flushing Town Hall will celebrate the Festival of Lights with its sixth annual Diwali Festival–reimagined as a FREE virtual event. Our virtual celebration mixes live and pre-recorded content and opens with footage of a home traditionally decorated for Diwali and an explanation of the holiday and traditional foods. Then Nupur Arora, owner of Queens Curry Kitchen, will demonstrate mouth-watering authentic Indian dishes with ingredients that you can find at your local grocer, including aloo gobhi (spiced potato and cauliflower), tikka masala sauce for chicken or tofu, and chai tea. Then move the furniture and get ready to move as master Indian dancer Abha B. Roy and the Srijan Dance Center shows you traditional, folk, and Bollywood dance moves. Once you are warmed up, keep moving as DJ Rekha spins the music for a Bhangra dance party.
The free event runs from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM on Zoom: here or at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/83474221283.
