Reminder: Rain Delay for Color Festival
Originally scheduled for Saturday, March 17, the South Pasadena Education Foundation has rescheduled its 3rd annual Color Festival for April 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the South Pasadena Unified School District parking lot, located at 1020 El Centro Street, in the city.
Organizers have decided to postpone the event on account of possible inclement weather this Saturday.
Inspired by the Indian spring festival of Holi, Color Festival is a celebration of spring for all ages featuring music, dancing, food, henna/flash tattoos, games, and vibrant color throws. As part of the celebration, event goers will be able to purchase small bags of brightly colored cornstarch and are invited to play, dance and color each other throughout the event. Every half hour there will be organized color throws, calling on participants to throw color into the air in unison and tinting the sky in pink, purple, orange, yellow, and blue hues.
The Color Festival is SPEF’s alternative to the annual Fun Fair, with a splash of color thrown in to welcome spring.
Admission to the Color Festival is $5 per person. The powder is additional with a variety of prices to fit everyone’s budget.
