L.A. Festival of Colors
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
What better way to ring in spring than by blanketing L.A.'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? L.A.'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.
