More than 1000 people descended on Gravesend's Riverside leisure area for the Festival of Light on Friday evening.
Children from local schools began the celebrations with a lantern parade leading down to the Thames, followed by music and entertainment by Four by Four Bhangra Youth Club and Samba band Bloco Fogo.
The evening climaxed with a light show by arts company Samesky.
Organiser Gurvinder Sandher of Kent Equality Cohesion Council said: We hope that the celebrations today helped to inspire all the young people who took part. This whole summer has been about inspiring a generation and we hope that we played a small part in this through our event today.”
