SVSU to celebrate Holi Festival of Colors in April
The South Asian Student Association at Saginaw Valley State University next month will host the traditional Holi Festival of Colors — an annual Hindu holiday celebrating the beginning of spring and the “victory of good over evil.” The tradition involves encouraging participants to throw colorful powder at each other.
Food, music, a dance competition and many other activities also will be included in the celebration.
Holi Festival of Colors at SVSU is set for Saturday, April 21, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Hamilton Gymnasium.
Tickets are $15 for the general public and $10 for students. Guests can pay $5 to participate only in the color throw. Children 6 and under can participate for free.
Along with tickets for the event, t-shirts are also being sold for $5 each.
