Barrie Indian Association is hosting its 4th Annual – Barrie’s Holi Fest., Festival of Colors on Sunday, March 28th from 11:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Barrie City Hall (outdoor, by the flags)
However, one of the most colourful festivals actually known as Festival of Colour or Holi is a two day celebration known nearly throughout the world now.
The festival stems from pranks that Lord Krishna was known for.
It is said that he enjoyed throwing colored powder on the village girls and wetting them, making the village a riot of bright colors during the 2 day event.
Nowadays the colored powder is still thrown, but water guns are used to aim well and wet!!
Whatever your heritage – springtime in Canada is certainly worth celebrating!
This is a virtual celebration that will be showcased LIVE on Facebook and Instagram of Barrie Indian Association.
