Known as the "Festival of Colors," Holi is a Hindu festival that has been celebrated across India since ancient times. Holi heralds the arrival of spring and is a time for colorful merrymaking and joyousness.

Being a symbol of spring and rebirth, Holi has roots in India’s agricultural community, however its history comes in part from Hindu mythology. Also known as the “Festival of Love,” Holi celebrates the enduring love between Radha and Krishna. Many revelers use the season to forgive and forget and repair broken or strained relationships. If you're down for good food, good friends, and good fun, you won't want to miss these events:

Here are some tips and tricks to help you make the most out of your Pace Holi experience:

  • Wear light colored clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.
  • The color powders we’re using are natural and non-toxic, but you may want to consider wearing sunglasses to prevent powder from entering your eyes.
  • To make sure the color powder washes off easily, apply moisturizer on exposed skin.
  • Respect others. Holi is a celebration for everyone, but it’s important to keep personal space and comfort in mind. Please keep your hands to yourself when applying colors.
  • If you are planning to record the events, be sure to put your phone in a plastic sandwich bag to protect it from damage and getting too dusty from the color powder.
