Holi is an ancient Hindu festival of color and love celebrated at the arrival of spring in India and Nepal. Music, dancing, and explosions of colored powder create these incredible visual landscapes. The celebration starts with a big bonfire, and the next morning, everyone runs around the city with water guns, balloons, and powder painting the city rich with color.
Several groups form impromptu musical parades with drums and other musical instruments. At the end of the day, people dress up and visit with friends and family.
It’s a wonderful place to capture photos. I imagine it would ruin your camera, but it’s worth the risk!
