On Sunday 110 people celebrated Holi at PLAID’s final festive event of the year. Students participated in art projects, including drawing henna, with everyone enjoying wonderful Indian food and music.
Holi is a Hindu festival that marks the arrival of spring. Known widely as the Festival of Colour, it takes place over two days, and is a celebration of fertility, colour, and love, as well as the triumph of good versus evil.
After finishing lunch, parents and students were given cups of colored edible powder to throw in good spirit and fun.
This event was held at Marina Middle School. The video below captures a slice of this delightful experience.
