In pictures: Lincoln Indian Society Diwali Celebration

Lincolnshire Showground was as explosion of colour this weekend for the Lincoln Indian Society’s annual Diwali celebrations.

The event, which has grown year on year, is a commemoration of the Hindu Festival of Lights, symbolising the spiritual victory of light over darkness, or good over evil.

See our gallery from the event on Saturday, November 2:
