Like it is in most of Maharashtra, the twin metro towns of Pimpri-Chinchwad are enthusiastic about its festivals. The festival is celebrated there with much joy and passion. While men and women of the metropolis wear modern clothes through the year, Diwali is the time when people shift back to traditional clothes – in a truly grand manner.
There are many large and small temples around Pimpri-Chinchwad. The Vaishno Devi temple is a prominent one on the old highway. All these temples are beautifully decorated during Diwali. Even this year, you can expect small shrines in the metropolis to light up from 17 October to 21 October. There will be several scheduled cultural events that are to be organized in the townships throughout the four days.
There are many emerging and established malls in Pimpri-Chinchwad that have become the way of life for students and Pune residents. Needless to mention, all of these places target Diwali heavily for their deals.
Pimpri-Chinchwad celebrates Diwali from 17 October to 21 October this year.
