Diwali Mela, 2013 – San Diego

Diwali is always special here in San Diego, and this year was no different.  First, we had the wonderful Festival Of Lights in Balboa Park, then we had the Diwali Mela just last weekend on November 9th.  The Mela always takes place in front of the Shri Mandir on Black Mountain Road in San Diego’s Mira Mesa area.  That’s also where one of my favorite Indian fast-food/snack restaurants are: Surati (see pictures of their yummy sweets right here).  Here’s just a few pictures:
