Holi Festival of Colors
March 23 1-3 p.m.
Celebrate spring with this traditional Indian festival that celebrates food, entertainment and a color fight. Interesting side note: A Phinney neighbor spearheaded this festival because they wanted to share their culture with the community. Food will be available for (cash) purchase. Enjoy a dance and singing lesson with Shruti Balakrishnan and a color fight with color powders. All religions, cultures, background and ages are welcome.
For more information on pricing and what to wear, go to the Phinney Center’s website.
