The Hindu festival of colors, also known as Holi, is celebrated every spring in honor of the triumph of good over evil, which might feel a little counterintuitive right now because the evil of pollen is flourishing. Nevertheless, the Orlando Holi Festival promises to be a vibrant celebration, allergies and all. People will toss colored powder and water at each other while Bollywood music plays in the background (and sets us all up for a Ram-Leela meet-cute). Expect delicious food and a lot more traditional dancing. While the admission is free at the Orlando Holi Festival, parking is $10, so Lyft accordingly.


11:30 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, March 23 | Bill Frederick Park, 3401 S. Hiawassee Road | 407-814-7501 | facebook.com/indianhorizonoffloridainc | free
