Holi Hai! – A Celebration of ‘Braj Style’ at Radha Madhav Dham, Austin on March 15


AUSTIN: Radha Madhav Dham is pleased to present “Holi Hai”, an exuberant and interactive celebration of the Indian festival of color, from 2 PM to 8 PM on Saturday, March 15. The program will be held all day at Radha Madhav Dham’s beautiful outdoor facilities and will comprise activities for all ages.

Holi, the Festival of Colors, is the season of hope and joy and a time of love and forgiveness. In India, it traditionally marks the beginning of the spring season. In the U.S., at the Radha Madhav Dham Temple, Holi is played in the playful and devotional style, as it is in the Braj district of India, in fond and loving remembrance of Radha and Krishna’s Divine pastimes. A diverse Texas community, both Indians and westerners, join in this joyful and colorful celebration of Holi with colored powder and vibrant dance & music.

This year’s festivities will begin early at 2pm, with Indian food booths (serving delicious chola bhatura, dosa, samosas, pakoras, jalebis and chai) and kids games, rides and a petting zoo.  Later in the evening, Indian dance presentations, a ‘Holi leela’ performance and a talk about Holi’s significance will be held on the outdoor stage, followed by joyful play with Holi colors at 6pm, a Holi bonfire, and concluding with special kirtans on the outdoor Maharas Mandal.

So, bring your family, friends and neighbors and join the Holi celebration at Radha Madhav Dham.  Attendance and parking are free, and all are welcome.  It’s a joy you will love remembering.
