Holi is a festival celebrating love – and the power of love to bring all good things into our lives. The festival signifies new life, new growth, new beginnings.
Holi, therefore, reminds us to color our life with love, faith, and a generous spirit. It calls us to give and receive. And best of all, it's just great fun. We get lost in color, forget about our usual identity, and experience life – and each other – from a whole new perspective.
Time: 11am - 5pm
