The annual Hindu New Year's celebration (Diwali) will take place at the BAPS Mandir in Lilburn this Sunday. The fireworks are scheduled for around 7:00 p.m., but you'll want to get there earlier to secure a good spot. I would recommend getting there around 5:00 or so. SPS members have shot this event the last several years and had a great time. For directions and additional information, you can go to the temple's website: http://atlanta.baps.org/index.html.

You are welcome to use a tripod and shoot the exterior of the Mandir (temple) and the reflecting pool from the plaza level before the fireworks, but no photography is allowed inside. I would very much encourage you to go inside, though, and see the display.
