A variety of festivals are celebrated the year round, from the Kite-flying festival of Uttarayan in January, to the festival of colours, Holi in March-April, to Rakshabandhan in August, to the festival of lights-Diwali, and Id-ul-Fitr, in October.
Besides these festivals, and other smaller ones, is the uniquely Gujarati celebration of the nine nights of Navaratri in September, when the city of Ahmedabad comes alive each night, with people performing Garba-the folk dance of Gujarat - at venues across the city.
