The Foster City Parks and Recreation Department and Baybasi, Inc. invite the community to join in the second annual celebration of Holi, the Festival of Colors on Saturday, April 6, 2013 from 11 AM – 4 PM at the Leo Ryan Park Meadow.
Holi is one of the largest festivals in India and is celebrated by people throwing colored powder and colored water at each other. Holi is celebrated (in India) at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day of the lunar month. One of Holi’s biggest customs is loosening the strictness of social structures and bringing communities together in an exhilarating experience.
Holi is significant for commemorating many myths and legends and symbolizes cleansing, a fresh start, and celebrating the coming of spring. In Foster City we will play Holi only with colored powder. The Foster City Parks and Recreation Department and Baybasi, Inc. are excited to be partnering to provide this free cultural community event!
Program activities include the following:
