The local Indian community came together under the beautiful cloudy Las Vegas sky to celebrate the colorful Holi festival. The Holi picnic, organized by the Friends of India, was well attended by over 200 members of the community with special Holi themed Bollywood dance performances by the local kids and adults alike. The beautiful calm cool Vegas spring weather was the perfect background for the Holi festivities with a vibrant riot of dry colors.
For the first time, Friends of India started charging for the Holi festivities and luncheon from both members and non-members. Holi powders in assorted colors were provided by the club along with the lunch buffet catered by the Bombay Indian Cuisine.
