Parramasala at Parramatta Night:-)

I went with one of my housemates and his friend to the inaugural Parramasala Festival at Parramatta..it is a South Asian Festival celebrating South Asian cultures and food (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, etc)...it was nice, the lighting above the streets reminded me of the festival lighting bck home in Malaysia...there was free entertainment and ticketed events as well with henna stalls and a sari bazaar...nice overall...had dinner at a pizza n pasta place afterwards on the main street in Parramatta...my first time having dinner at Parramatta i think:-)

Anyways, the Parramasala Festival coincided with the important annual festival of lights, Deepavali (or Diwali)...so to all my readers whom celebrate the festival...

Happy Deepavali!

I went to Paramatta once just to pick up a car. Didn't really take a look around. Does this place have a high concentration of Indians and Pakistani?

Have you been to Cabramatta before? If not yet you should give it a try. It's not a place to avoid any more. We love it, so much to eat and so vibrant.
