Event - Celebrating Holi, the Spring Festival of Colors

Celebrating Holi, the Spring Festival of Colors

03.31.19, 2:30 pm

All families and friends are invited to join us on Sunday March 31st, as we celebrate Holi at the Queens Museum. This colorful event is presented by the Hindu Temple Society of North America, Flushing, NY.  Holi marks the onset of Spring when the re-generation of Mother Earth also takes place. As the Earth fills the atmosphere with the vibrant colors of the flowers and greenery, so does Holi.

Come and enjoy colorful multi-cultural dances and music. Performers from different nationalities and cultures will come together to express their joy of the changing season and their gratitude to Mother Earth for her bounty. This colorful event, which will be a feast for the eyes, ears and mind, is sure to put everyone in the spirit of spring and friendship.

Free and Open to all!

Traditional sweets and drinks are distributed to friends and foes alike — “even enemies are friends on Holi” is the theme of Holi. The usual social divides like gender, age and status are set aside and everyone mingles freely without malice; which helps ‘burn’ the evil thoughts in our hearts, bringing harmony among all. This is a good time to forge new friendships and renew old ones.
