Holi festival to be held Mar. 25
Friday, March 25, 2011, from 4-6pm
Holi, one of the most festive holidays in India, will be celebrating at the Asian Culture Center. Holi is a traditional Indian celebration that commemorates the triumph of good over evil as well as the coming of spring. The festival of colors is a day to dance, eat lots of delicious food(catered by Taste of India), and throw colored powder to symbolize the coming of spring and bringing good harvest. Holi typically falls on the day after the first full moon in the month of March and is a day full of laughter and fun! Come enjoy ethnic cuisine, cultural performances, henna, and a color fight at this free event! Mark your calendars and don't forget to wear something you don't mind getting color on! If it rains, the celebration will be held at the Asian Culture Center with indoor activities and games minus the color fight.
In light of the tragic events in Japan, there will be speakers from the Japanese Student Association who will give an update and talk about relief activities that their organization and other groups will be hosting.
For more information, please contact Priyanka Dube at email@example.com.
The event is co-sponsored by the IU Asian Culture Center, Indian Students Association, Delta Phi Omega Sorority, Inc., Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity, Office of Multicultural Initiatives (OMI), and Japanese Student Association.
