The Color Festival Hawai’i is a modern American version of a traditional Indian Holi Festival, a 1,000-year-old ritual of throwing and applying of colored powders on friends and family, which gives the holiday its common name, “Festival of Colors.” Clouds of colors dancing in the wind carry the message of love and happiness across to all who participate.
