Now what could be more appropriate for this group than a cultural celebration in honor of color?
From the official website: In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a colorful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other. Though liquid colors are used in India (where it's warm) we prohibit them, as we don't want anyone to catch cold on account of the festival. Dry is better for photographs as well.
There will be non stop live music from great bands, yoga, mantras, dance, cuisine, and the throwing of dry colors on friend and foe alike. Countdowns & Color throws every two hours starting from noon - 8pm.
Carpooling is always encouraged. Gates open at 10:30; I plan on being there around 11, and staying most of the day. Feel free to trickle in and meet up with us later!
