Summer ‘Holi‘ parties are becoming more popular and crowd puller events (outside India) in recent years. Holi festival is traditionally celebrated in spring for Unity in Diversity, Universal Happiness, promoting Togetherness and Celebrating life with Colours (Read – Holi party new rage in Britain). People throw different coloured powder (generally made up of flower petals and certain plant leaves) in the air and on each other followed by music & open air mass dance party. Sometimes, it is followed by coloured water or simple water/shower, a kind of coloured water rain/shower dance party to beat summer heat 😀
Such Holi parties are regularly organized by HoliOne Organization ; almost whole year (nothing to do with Holi festival as per Indian calendar) at many cities in countries like France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Poland, UK, USA, Spain, Czech Republic, Brasil, Costa Rica, South Africa (Visit official website of organizer in your city via internet search or ask local tourist office).
