Florida Tech Celebrates Holi

Recently, I participated in something I had never done before (and really hope to do again in the future). Florida Tech’s Student Government Association held a festive Holi celebration in Southgate Fields. Holi is a Hindu festival of colors that celebrates love and spring. There was paint by the bucketful, great Indian music, a Slip-and-Slide and water balloons. It was amazing to throw paint everywhere, get hit by paint, get soaked with water and slide around on the Slip-and-Slide. I ended up a painted wet mess, but I had a fantastic time. Check out the photos below and Happy Holi!

Blue Holi paint powder splattered on the grass. By the end of the day, the entire field looked like a rainbow threw up. It was awesome.
