In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. 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) in California, they use dry color, which is better for photographers.
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: Fullerton Park & Ride at the corner of Magnolia and Orangethorpe, where the 5 and 91 meet. We'll leave at 11:00.
