What is Holi?
Holi is a Hindu festival that marks the arrival of spring.
Known widely as the festival of colours, it takes place over two days, and is a celebration of fertility, colour, and love, as well as the triumph of good versus evil.
First 100 participants to arrive at the Kamloops Holi festival of colours receive a free colour packet.
Bring cash to purchase food. (Colour packets are a powdered paint substance that may not fully wash out of some clothing items.)
Never attended a Holi festival of colour? Some recommendations:
- Wear clothes you will not be sad if they become paint stained, as the paint may not fully wash out.
- Bring a change of clothes and bags to put your-painted clothes into. Or, bring garbage bags to sit on when traveling home in your car or on bus seats.
- Dress for the weather.
