Festival of Holi

On July 28th, 2012, in St. Petersburg Russia, there will be a festival called the “Festival of Colors Holi”. The festival will start at 15:00 and more than 7,000 participants are expected to attend. The festival is about body painting and body decorations, which is full of bright emotions, stirring music, and thousands of people united by one idea. In the Indian culture, there is a special tradition that unites all the Indians into one bright-multicolored society, and this is the festival of Holi. 

This day is supposed to be the most colorful day of the year, and will feature tons of paint, fashion show models decorated by professional artists, rock bands, and special paint brought from India. The paint is best applied to oily skin, then it is easily washed off, so don’t worry about having the paint stick to you for days! Also, it is recommended to wear older clothes in case they get dirty. Come out and experience a bright day that is unlike any other in the year. It is perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity!
