The East Indian Celebration of Colour, Holi Hungama, is coming back to Calgary on March 3.
The festival celebrates the victory of good over evil, as well as acting as a thanksgiving for a good harvest and the arrival of spring. For the past three years, Calgary’s own Sparq Productions has put together an event for Holi Hungama, with the fourth annual event taking place at the start of this March, 2018.
- Justin Trudeau has officially gone overboard with his clothing choices in India
- 10th annual Rocky Mountain Oysterfest back in Calgary next week
- Canadian Blood Services have put out an urgent call for immediate donors
Hosted at the Magnolia Banquet Hall, attendees will receive a free glass of wine upon entry, be able to enjoy the wide variety of performances, and participate in the colour-throw DJ dance party.
Wearing white is recommended, as the dance party leaves participants covered from head to toe in a rainbow of coloured powder, all while dancing alongside other colourful celebrators.
Just take a look at the 2017 event to get an idea of what the Festival of Colour is all about! Tickets are currently available online.
