Diwali at the Midtown Global Market

Midtown Global Market

Midtown Global Market and Hot Indian Foods are hosting a Diwali celebration. A big screen will offer virtual dance performances by Ragamala Dance Company. Kids 10 and under can take home a free, pre-packaged Rangoli/kids craft. There will be a “lighting” countdown at 1 p.m. when all kids can “light up” their free glo-gift in unison.

Hot Indian will offer Diwali meal kits for sale, enough for two hungry feasters. Choose between the popular Rice Bowl Kit ($32.99) or street inspired Kati Roll Kit ($29.99). Both include crunchy Papadums with a variety of chutneys for snacking, choice of filling, toppings, roti, Parle-Gs and sweets. In honor of Diwali, mango and date ladoos will be included.
