I'm posting Holi! This was pure awesomeness last year, we had such a blast! Holi is a Indian festival of colors. Basically everyone gets together and throws colored powder and water on each other. How much more fun could that be? The picture is the MiPGH group from last year. Yes, it's really that fun.
Registration is $7 or $12 if you want lunch and it goes to a good cause (child rights). You can save a couple of bucks if you buy your tickets online
. They'll provide colors with the registration fee. Registration and food starts at 1pm and the actual celebration starts at 1:30pm. We'll meet around 1:15pm and hang on on Flagstaff Hill before it starts. Wear clothes you can get dirty (and maybe leave a towel in the car), they'll be selling t-shirts if you need to change. There'll be music and food, so it'll be fun even if you don't want to play with colors. This should be kid-friendly. Water guns and so on should also be ok if you want to bring them. For updates, you can RSVP on Facebook
