Holi

Today, nine of us decided to go up to Belfast to celebrate Holi, the Hindu festival of colours. The celebration took place in St George's Market and was free for everyone to participate or observe.


There was food, craft stalls, music and dancing, and even some audience-participation drumming led by The Gathering Drum. The highlight was the "paint party" whereby participants threw powder paint over each other.


We decided not to participate as we had a 75 mile drive home with no change of clothing, so we all came away with a conservative dot on the forehead:


Whilst others ended up looking like this:

An enjoyable and colourful day was had by all!
