5 Holi events happening in the US this weekend

Here are some Holi events happening in different cities of the USA.

As we begin to take in the sweet smell of spring, Indians in the US and all around the world get ready to celebrate the first festival of the season – Holi. Also known as the festival of colors, Holi brings about much-needed excitement after an extremely stressful year of Covid-19 and lockdowns. As the United States is slowly and steadily opening up to a somewhat normal but still watchful life, there are many Holi events happening all around the country over the next few days.  Of course, all the events have Covid-19 protocols in place and encourage people to follow all the safety rules.

We bring to you a list of such events from across the country.  Enjoy and a very happy Holi from @PinkvillaUSA to all the readers.
