I was novice to Holi Festival. I've only seen the Holi Festival photos online. It's definitely a different feeling when I was among those friendly strangers, everyone was in good spirit.

The festival was held at Houston Farm & Ranch, which houses Harris County Fair and many other festivals. The organizer used the huge grassy area for live performances. Tented booths from the community and food vendors lined along the edge. Children's moon walk was in the shaded area where lots of people used for picnic.
|This was before I got "blessed" by those colored powder|
Just about every celebrant bought gulal (Holi powder) gathered to touch with blessing motion to greet strangers in different colors. Emcee on stage asked people to throw powder in the air simultaneously to make a massive rainbow dust cloud. The scenery was indescribable.

Holi Festival is a Hindu tradition to celebrate the arrival of spring, share the joy of love and friendship.
I was surprised to see this festival had no bag search. You can bring outside food in. People seemed to be well-behaving.
|You can be in any shape, size, color and spirit to enjoy.|
