What is Holi?
Holi is a Hindu festival that marks the arrival of spring. Known widely as the Festival of Colours, it takes place over two days, and is a celebration of fertility, colour, and love, as well as the triumph of good versus evil.
First 100 participants to arrive at the Kamloops HOLI Festival of Colours will get a free colour packet. Bring cash to purchase additional packets. (Colour packets are a powdered paint substance that may not fully wash out of some clothing items.)
For those who have never attended a HOLI Festival of Colour, here are some recommendations.
- Wear clothes that you will not be sad if they’re paint stained as it may not fully wash out. Please dress weather appropriately.
- Bring big garbage bags to sit on your car/bus seats when returning home.
