Are you off work? Get your weekend off to a very bright start with Solar One‘s celebration of Holi, the Hindu Festival of Colors today, Friday, March 29, at Stuyvesant Cove Park just down the street from us! If you’re not familiar with it, Holi marks the beginning of Spring for Hindus around the world. Participants dress in white clothing and celebrate the coming of spring with its abundant colors by throwing colored powders at each other! Traditional Holi powders were made with medicinal herbs to ward off illnesses caused by weather changes but Solar One is using rice flour and food coloring to make the celebration as benign as possible. Children and families are welcome and participation is FREE.
