The Festival of Colours (otherwise known as Holi) is coming to Melbourne this Sunday, March 7.

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

For a full week, this long-held Hindu tradition sees 1.25 billion Indians play outside, splashing each other with bright neon colours. Streets, fields, temples and buildings are covered in this rainbow free-for-all.

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!

When: 11:30am - 7.30pm March 7, 2020
