During this festival, people throw powdered paint (gulal) at each other filling the air with bright clouds of vibrant color. Colored water and flower petals are also thrown. This is an exuberant celebration with lots of dancing and singing in the streets and bonfires being lit during the evenings.
There are Holi celebrations throughout the world, including a very large one in the United States in Spanish Fork, Utah and one in Washington, DC. Read abou the one in Washington, DC here.
