The vibrant hues of the Holi Festival painted a picture of unity and joy as over 2,000 people gathered in the Casey/Cardinia council to mark the occasion. Hosted by ISKCON of Melbourne, the festivities epitomized the spirit of camaraderie, joy, and cultural richness.

Holi, also known popularly as The Festival of Colors, holds a significant place in Indian culture. In part, it symbolizes the arrival of the colors of Spring in the northern hemisphere. It’s also deeply connected to eternal love of Their Lordships Radha and Krishna, and commemorates the victory of Lord Krishna over the demoness Holika.

The event featured various activities catering to people of all ages and backgrounds. From spirited song and dance to the traditional throwing of colored powders, the day was filled with laughter and revelry. Children enjoyed jumping castles, while adults found solace in meditation tents and indulged in henna artistry and delectable cuisine.

The success of the day was made possible by the dedication of ISKCON Melbourne volunteers, whose efforts ensured a memorable celebration for all attendees. The community extends its heartfelt gratitude to everyone who joined in commemorating this special day of cultural significance and togetherness.
