Govinda’s Natural Foods Buffet (711 E. Blacklidge Drive) has been serving up excellent vegetarian and vegan food since 1992, and they hold quite a few free festivals and other events every year.
Speaking of free festivals … I somehow botched getting Govinda’s notice for their Diwali Festival of Lights and Indian New Year into our City Week listings this week. The event - which takes place from 6 to 10 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 17 - features Indian dancing, music and fire spinners for the adults, and an activity area with face-painting, animal balloons and a jumping castle for the kids.
Best of all, there’ll be free food throughout the event, with a special vegetarian feast going down at 9 p.m. It’s all free, including the vegetarian feast.
