Photos: Holi Comes to Foss

Holi, the Indian Festival of Color, arrived on Foss last Friday for what looks to me like a technicolor Woodstock of bodypainting and smiles. Scroll on for a handful of photos from the event courtesy of Nico Vitti ’12, Jeffrey Price ’13, and Kaitlin DeWilde ’13 (in that order). This post in no way offers comment on the related Usdan flier incident—just a glimpse at the event itself, which shouldn’t go uncelebrated on this blog.

HOLI: The Indian Festival of Color @ Foss

Katherine Yagle ’12, critically acclaimed Executive Editor of the Argus and founding manager of Yagle’s Bagles, had a dream that there would be HOLI at Wesleyan. Tomorrow, on Foss, it gets real:

Get down. Get drunk drenched. Get dirty.

It’s HOLI, the Indian Festival of Color, and it’s time to celebrate. Put on your cleanest whites and come to Foss prepared to get rainbow-fied.

Shakti is providing the color powder and the jams. All you need to bring is yourself, your friends, and maybe a water gun.

  • $5 gets you a t-shirt and 2 bags of colored powder (for sale in Usdan the week of Holi)
  • If we run out of t-shirts wear your own white shirt to the event and get one bag free.
  • Every additional bag is $1.

Date: Friday, April 27
Time: 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
