The Holi Festival is back this year with a riot of colors to spread joy and laughter, from 12-4 p.m. on March 3 at Bellevue Downtown Park, 10201 NE 4th St.

People from all walks of life are invited to join the event to celebrate the festival “Holi” — known as the festival of colors. The festival can be a reason to bring a smile to the children who are less fortunate, as the funds generated through these events are used to send underserved children in India to school.

The festival marks the arrival of spring and encourages the spirit of oneness. The nonprofit Child Rights and You (CRY) raises funds with these annual events.

During the event, thousands of people will throw organic color on each other; red, blue and green will be the new hues of the faces at the event. People will dance to the upbeat Bollywood numbers played by DJ RDX, enjoying the shades of colors.
