Makar Sankranti is a Hindu Festival which celebrates the transition from winter to spring. Along with the seasonal transition from harsher, colder winters to more temperate springs, Sankranti also represents a new beginning to many Hindus. To celebrate the arrival of spring (and the passing of the winter solstice), people fly kites toward the sun; this stands as a metaphor for reaching to God. Sankranti is also held to honor, workship, and pay respect to Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge. Overall, Sankranti identifies a period of enlightenment, peace, prosperity, and happiness Join us for free kites, free food, free henna, games, and more! Special Thanks To: Green Events
