A Holi Festival will be held Friday from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the South Quad as a part of Asian Heritage Month.

Holi, also known as the festival of love and colors, is an internationally celebrated holiday meant to unite people and to forget negative feelings toward people.

Typically the Indian holiday lasts for a day and a night and is known under various names in the country.

A part of Holi, “Festival of Colors,” is celebrated annually at Eastern and is color-filled to celebrate good harvests and land fertility as well as the eternal love between Radha and Krishna, according to the official website for the Holi Festival.

This event is free for anyone to attend.
