What better way to ring in spring than by blanketing LA's smoggy skies with a plume of technicolor yellow, cobalt, magenta and acid green powder, dancing your butt off and practicing a little yoga to boot? LA's Festival of Colors brings the traditional Indian custom of Holi—during which revelers douse each other in colorful powder as a way to welcome spring—to the West coast. There will also be Bhangra (group Punjabi folk dancing) and performances by world-music phenoms. Expect to rage along with tens of thousands of merrymakers who pack protective eye gear and loving dispositions—despite the tendency to fling clothes-staining substances at fellow festival-goers, it's all about the free hugs and spiritual enlightenment and this pretty party for the soul.
