Holi Festival of Colors comes to Texas Tech campus
The Texas Tech South Asian Student Association and the Cross-Cultural Academic Advancement Center host the sixth annual Holi Festival of Colors.
At the Holi Festival of Colors, family and friends throw colored powders at each other to celebrate the coming of spring. This event includes cultural performances, music, free food and t-shirts. Traditional Hindu dress asks people to wear white to the event. Free white Holi t-shirts will be available at the festival.
Holi is an annual festival celebrated on the day after the full moon in the Hindu month of Phalguna (early March). It celebrates spring while commemorating various events in Hindu mythology.
The Festival of Colors is free and open to the public.
