More than 20,000 people from around the Bay Area are expected at the Alameda County Fairgrounds to take part in the festival, which will give attendees a cultural and literal taste of India. There will be a parade with 10 floats featuring various Hindu deities, yoga and meditation workshops, fireworks and performances by local entertainers as well as Bollywood actress Celina Jaiytli and Punjabi singer Harjeet Mehndi. And food. Lots of it. Diwali’s rich history dates back to ancient India and is usually held between the months of October and November based on the lunar calendar. It is a triumph of good over evil, which is celebrated with fireworks, family gatherings, gift-giving and dance by most Hindus.

The enchanting score, clattering castanets and overall atmosphere of whimsy are why “Don Quixote” is second only to “The Nutcracker” as a traditional gateway to a love of ballet. Ballet San Jose is reaching out to young audiences with programming for children before the Saturday matinee, including arts and crafts activities, story time with a ballerina and an introductory ballet class. “Don Quixote” isn’t completely new to BSJ. At the inaugural gala last November, the program included Chapman’s staging of the grand pas de deux from the wedding scene, one of ballet’s most frequently excerpted pieces (Chapman’s future ABT partner Leslie Browne performed it in the 1977 film “The Turning Point,” a role for which she earned a best supporting actress Academy Award nomination).
