One of the largest concentrations of Indian Americans in the country is in California’s Silicon Valley.

The high tech industry is the Asian Indian version of the gold rush to the Chinese immigrants.

Thousands attended celebrations recently marking the Festival of Lights or Diwali, reported India West.

The event at Memorial Park in Cupertino brought young, old and entire families together.

There were pets and animals for the kids, traditional Indian clothing and jewelry for sale or to browse  and cultural entertainment for all.
