I’M sure a lot of you attended the Umzinto Diwali Gala last weekend, and may I just add that it was great fun!

If you missed out, don’t worry because you can still catch up with the festivities at the Park Rynie beach lifesaving club grounds this Saturday, October 26.

And guess what? It’s free!

There is a jam-packed programme of events which includes sport, music and dance, and there will be prizes to be won throughout the day.

Festivities begin at 2pm, supper will be served from 6pm to 7pm and you can expect a spectacular firework display later in the evening.

Even though I do not celebrate Diwali, I still enjoy the gorgeous firework displays.

At the same time, I have fur babies who are not so fond of fireworks because of the noise.

Please remember, if you have animals, visit your vet and get calming tablets to help them through this time.

A lot of dogs are frightened by the sound of fireworks and often go into panic mode and run away from home.

Make sure that your dogs have collars so if they do go missing, it will be easier to make sure you are reunited with your pet.

For those of you lighting fireworks this year, find out the time-frame allocated for this, and make sure you adhere to it.

Also, if possible, rather opt for less noisy fireworks, and make sure your pets are safely inside.

And if you have lit any fireworks, clean up after yourself and properly dispose of all packaging.

A very happy and blessed Diwali to all celebrating…stay safe!
