What am I in for?
We are getting over 5500 pounds of five different colors, all starch based with no harmful chemicals.
Suggested use: Grab handfuls of different colors, and smear all over nearest face, self included. Try aiming for friends or family, though complete strangers on the field wouldn’t mind either. Try not to smile too wide when they return the favor pink teeth don’t suit everyone.
Water hoses, Water guns*, Water puddles in the ground! – Whatever you need to soak your friends.
Savor delicious Indian food*. You will need all that energy to go back on the color battle-ground.
What do you do when you get tired of all the great food, free showers, pretend-artists, and bathroom dancers on the field?
Stop by the stage, and be entertained! We are hosting dance performances, by popular Bay Area dance troupes.
No one can resist dancing to non-stop Bollywood music. Don’t know the moves? – pick some up today from the latest desi video online, or even the nearest desi on the day!
Too shy? come on, you think anyone can recognize you under all that color?! Need more motivation? we are giving away prizes for dancing!
Kids get their own fun corner at Holi – with their own color and water section, Holi games and activities, and other playmates to keep them company.
You are going to have a hard time dragging them away at the end of the day.
