Please Join nonprofit SAEF, as we launch celebrations across lower Manhattan in honor of the Diwali, Festival of Lights. This three-day event, The All-American Diwali, will be a tribute of lights and sounds. On November 2, 3 and 4th, from dusk until 2 am, the platform of One World Trade Center will be bright with animated imagery portraying the symbolism of Diwali. Then on Wednesday, November 3, at Pier D, spectacular fireworks over the Hudson will light up the Jersey City & Lower Manhattan skyline. Best viewing spots will be from Grundy Park in Jersey City & Rockefeller Park in lower Manhattan. Come down to the World Trade Center to view our spectacular animated light show and post for your friends with #AllAmericanDiwali.

Diwali is a festival that inculcates positive energy within every soul. It's true essence lies in the fact that it cherishes the win of good over evil and from darkness to light.
