Wall street food festival has been canceled because of weather.


The Diwali Festival will be celebrated in Spokane on Saturday, Oct. 22, at River Park Square.

Through the city-wide art contest, Spokane’s United We Stand plans to celebrate the vibrant and iconic traditions of Diwali. Cash prizes range from $100 to $500 depending on age group.

The contest is open to anyone of all ages. Entries will be judged based on originality and creativity, and participants must be a resident within a 50-mile radius of Spokane.

The contest will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at River Park Square Mall. The food festival will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wall St.

The festival is free and open to the public.
