Preferred dress code for the UNMC event is a white T-shirt, and organizers are telling visitors to "prepare to get colored."
The Holi festival is a Hindu spring festival, celebrated in India and becoming popular internationally, that symbolizes rejuvenation and optimism. People toss colors on each other as a way to wash away the gloom of winter.
The event will include Indian snacks, music, games and prizes. As a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House, a Kindle Fire will be raffled off. Everyone is welcome!
Sponsors for the event include the Student Senate, UNMC Graduate Studies, UNMC Academic Affairs and the Graduate Student Association, as well as personal donations. Food and drink sponsors include Flavors, Maharala, Kurry Express, Namaste Groceries and Sodexo.
