SVSU hosts Holi Festival of Colors to celebrate spring

The South Asian Student Association at Saginaw Valley State University will celebrate spring with the traditional Holi Festival of Colors — an annual Hindu holiday celebrating the beginning of spring and the “victory of good over evil.” The tradition involves encouraging participants to throw colorful powder at each other.

Food, music, a dance competition and many other activities also will be included in the celebration.

Holi Festival of Colors at SVSU is set for Saturday, April 21, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Hamilton Gymnasium.

Based on advance ticket sales, organizers expect around 800 people to attend.
