RIA Festival of Colors : Music, Masti, Dhamaal
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.
Redmond Indian Association (RIA) provides 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:

- Vibrant colors with our community, their family, friends and neighbors.
- Foot tapping bollywood music played by our community DJ Kapil
- Sumptuous chat / snacks and beverages and Holi delicacies
This is a completely volunteer driven event made possible by ticket sale.

This year we are supporting Hopelink's Redmond Chapter. You probably may know that Hopelink serves homeless and low-income families, children, seniors and people with disabilities in north and east King County. Click here to learn more about Hopelink.
Last year we donated the savings from this event to Sai Seva Sadan www.saisevasadan.com. Sai Seva Sadan serves the rural poor children / adolescents who have no way of getting specialized medical and special education facilities. We donated via Asha for Education since Asha already has established infrastructure and process to make sure donation is utilized for the stated causes.
We look forward to celebrating yet another fun-filled family friendly Festival of Colors with you.
