EDINBURG – This week, many in the Rio Grande Valley will be celebrating Thanksgiving, but earlier this month, there was another celebration: the Hindu Festival of Lights, also known as “Diwali”.

For Valley residents whose heritage comes from India, it’s a major observance.

There were samplings of dance and music from the different regions of India.

It’s the fifth year it’s celebrated at the Edinburg courtyard at city hall, a sharing of the Indian culture.
