Cherry blossoms weren’t the only attraction in Washington this weekend. About 8,000 people attended Holi DC, a Hindu festival in Potomac celebrating the start of spring. On Saturday and Sunday, festival-goers participated in “rainbow throws,” which involved throwing vibrant powders at one another and covering themselves in patches of color. There was vegetarian food, music by kirtan musician Gaura Vani, and lots and lots of laundry to be done. Here’s a peek into what you may have missed this year.
