The annual Festival of Color will be from noon to 4 p.m. tomorrow at Redmond City Hall, 15670 N.E. 85th St.
The event is organized by the Vedic Cultural Center (VCC) as part of the 2015 Redmond Arts Season with grant support from the Redmond Arts and Culture Commission.
This is the third year of the Festival of Color in Redmond.
The Festival of Color is modeled after the Indian Spring Color Festival of Holi. It is celebrated in India at the start of spring with lighting a bonfire and play of colors. It is rooted in Indian mythology and tradition, and marks the triumph of good over evil.
“We are delighted to come up with yet another offering of this highly participatory festival. Our special musical guests this year are the Ananda Groove led by Jai Krishna, from Salt Lake City,” said Latha Sambamurti, Washington State Arts commissioner and artistic director of the Festival of Color. “We will have several countdowns for plays of color, announced by special guests, every half an hour. Delicious food will be available for sale, as will be color powders and accessories.”
Harry Terhanian, VCC president added, “We are pleased to partner with the City of Redmond again to offer the Festival of Color. This festival is designed to appeal to the entire community, suitable for all ages. We are pleased to see this festival develop within a short span of time into a signature Redmond event.”
