Parramatta will host the biggest Indian festival in Australia which will bring Hindus from all over the country and overseas.

The Festival of Lights, or Diwali, will be held at Parramatta Stadium on Sunday (October 11).

Last year the festival, organised by the Hindu Council of Australia, was held at Sydney Olympic Park and drew a crowd of 20,000.

Last week, Parramatta Lord Mayor Paul Garrard agreed to open the festival and to have a Happy Diwali low-voltage sign erected on the town hall for a week.
