Holi Festival

An annual celebration of the victory of good over evil and of a good harvest, the Holi Festival is an ancient Hindu religious event that takes place on the first day after the full moon in March. Signified by the burning of the demoness Holika, this ‘festival of colours’ takes its inspiration from the stories of Lord Krishna, who would prank village girls by drenching them in water and coloured powder. Today this event draws passionate participants from around the world to coloured powder street battles, guaranteeing amazing photo opportunities. www.holifestival.org
