Houston Holi Festival of Colors
The Houston Holi is "the largest and the most colorful HOLI in the USA" meaning attendance numbers in the tens of thousands each year, according to the event's website. Holi is the Indian festival of color that originates from the Braj region of India and the theme of the event portrays a victory of good over evil. The festival filled with the pulsing beats of the drum draws you in to celebrate, tambouring your way through the crowd in time with the music. Throwing color is an expected part of the tradition. Non-toxic herbal color powders will be available for purchase at the event. You may also bring your own color providing it has no permanent dyes (it needs to wash out with plain water). There is also a "color free" zone around the Main Stage if you don't want to get color bombed.
Happening at the Houston Holi Festival
Houston Holi 2018 highlights include all-day color throwing, a music festival, including a live concert featuring Zach Knight, Bollywood music, dance, yoga, giant kid's rides, instant photo booths, and a ceremonial Holi bonfire.

It's a good idea to wear white clothing you don't mind staining, as the colors will fly in abundance.
