Spring hasn’t sprung quite yet, but when it does – it’s going to be met with one of the year’s most vibrant festivals!

Holi, a festival of colours is “a Hindu tradition that celebrates the arrival of spring and the triumph of good over evil,” explains the Indian Society of Calgary.

Described as a lively affair this beautiful event will feature music, traditional Indian food, and of course – the throwing of vivid powder!

“Get ready to be drenched in a riot of colours as we celebrate the arrival of spring and bid farewell to winter,” they wrote.

“Don’t miss out on the chance to experience the magic of Holi in the heart of Calgary. Grab your friends and family, and let’s paint the town red, blue, green, and every rainbow colour!”

The festival will be open to anyone and everyone who wants to mark the occasion and will take place on April 13th at Bowness Park between 11 am and 3:30 pm.

If however, you can’t wait to commemorate the sunny season, a similar event will take place in Sylvan Lake this March.
