Color Fight! The ‘Holi’ Festival is Coming to the Bay

Get messy during the wonderful, colorful, ancient spring ritual of Holi
By - posted 3/21/2019 No Comment

Holi is a Hindu spring festival known as the “festival of colors” or the “festival of love.”

The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, the end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships.

While the massive festivals and playful color fights take place in India and Nepal, there are plenty of fun smaller versions that take place throughout the Bay.

Here’s Funcheap’s ultimate guide to all of the best Holi celebrations around the Bay.
