Every year when spring begins in India, Indians all across the world celebrate.

Signifying the triumph of good over evil, the end of winter and the arrival of spring, it is a time to be outside and celebrate with friends, family and community. In Melbourne, there will be marching int he streets, drum playing, traditional music, variety stalls, a huge DJ lineup, nonstop dance music, water balloons, and Melbourne's most famous food trucks.
Go along for what's being described as a festival + parade + concert + paint war all at once!
