Each year, the Holi event at Fremont Hindu Temple promises colors, music, dance, free lunch and lots of fun for all ages. This year, the joyous festival will be celebrated Sunday, March 15.

"Every year around 600-800 people play Holi in Fremont Hindu Temple," says Ajay Jain Bhutoria, chairman of the Youth Committee. "On this day, people do not differentiate between age or race, and everybody celebrates the festival together with a spirit of brotherhood."

With its vibrant colors, this ancient Indian festival celebrates the unyielding human spirit and the victory of good over evil, marking the end of winter gloom and rejoicing in the bloom of springtime--a new season, the end of cold and hardship, a harbinger of hope.
