This story has been updated. 

On Sunday, March 24, Holi: Festival of Colors, will be held at Glenlake Park in Decatur.

The event begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 11:30 a.m.

Funded by the DeKalb Library Foundation, this is the third consecutive local Holi – an Indian festival that invites families and friends to play around with dry colors and get a little messy.

According to a recent press release, “this fun community building event is the brainchild of Mia Manekofsky, Youth Services Principal Librarian at DeKalb County Public Library, and cultural entrepreneur Gauri Misra-Deshpande, founder of indianculturebox.org.”

In addition, Misra-Deshpande is making a batch of thandai, a spiced milk served in India, for the festival.

Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in clothes that can get stained with color “from head to toe.” It’s also recommended that festival-goers walk or bring a cover for car seats to avoid staining other items with color.
