RIA Festival of Colors 2020 : Color! Music! Masti!
Redmond Indian Association (RIA) aims at providing a wonderful opportunity to promote, preserve and share cultural traditions with the diverse community at Redmond Ridge.
Continuing our tradition of celebrating festivals together as a community, RIA is pleased to announce that we are celebrating the festival of colors on:
Saturday, March 7 between 12 noon to 2.30 PM @Bristol Park
The festival of colors, is one of the most exciting and fun filled Indian festivals. The festival marks the end of winter and the abundance of the upcoming spring harvest season. It is a festive day to meet loved ones, play, laugh, forget & forgive, and bury hatchets with a warm embrace. The Festival of Color frees all of inhibitions so they can relate others with pure joy. It brings people together and creates a community of happy people. It symbolizes the victory of good over evil. The spirit of this festival is truly universal.
What to expect?
- A riot of colors to be played with family, friends and neighbors.
- Foot-tapping Bollywood music by our community DJ Kapil
- Sumptuous snacks and beverages including the Holi delicacies
- A colorful photo-booth
This is a completely volunteer-driven event made possible by ticket sale. We would love to have more volunteers for the D-day event. We encourage middle- and high-school kids to step-up and earn their volunteer hours. If interested, please Click here.
Continuing with our tradition of giving, this year we are donating all the savings from ticket sales of our event to treehouse, an organization whose mission is "Giving Foster Kids a Childhood and a Future"
Last year, we had supported the Food Lifeline, an organization whose mission is "to feed people who are experiencing hunger today and, at the same time, solve the issue of hunger for tomorrow." Their vision is to end hunger in western Washington state.
Looking forward to celebrating yet another fun-filled family friendly Festival of Colors with you.
See you on March 7th!!
