Holi is a spring festival also known as festival of colours! Its a carnival of colours, where everyone plays, and colours each other with dry powder and coloured water, and with coloured water-filled balloons for their water fight.
Anyone and everyone is fair game, friend or stranger, rich or poor, man or woman, children and elders. The frolic and fight with colours occurs in the open streets, open parks, outside temples and buildings. Groups carry drums and musical instruments, go from place to place, sing and dance.
