The countdown to spring has finally begun. We’re less than two weeks away from a new season of colors, scents and warmth. This time of year also brings an energetic and positive celebration: Holi, also known as the festival of colors.
Traditionally, Holi is celebrated in India and Nepal to mark the beginning of spring and bring happiness and positivity. The celebrations have expanded to the rest of the world in the form of vibrant festivals. These events involve music, dancing and dusts of colors. Without further ado, these are the best events in New York.
