Saturday, April 6  

The colorful culture of India will be celebrated with the popular Holi Festival of Colors — but wear a white t-shirt on which you don’t mind getting a rainbow of powder!   

The Indian Student Association is hosting this event, which welcomes Spring. It, too, is open to the public. It is free.  

The festival will start at noon in Gorilla Village (in the parking lot east of Carnie Smith Stadium) and in addition to the traditional throwing of colored powders will include music and beverages.
