Tauranga's Jordan Park is set to welcome the autumn season with a sensory extravaganza celebrating the world famous Indian Festival of Holi Colour Splash where people dance and frolic, play, chase and colour each other with dry powder. Festival is to be held on Saturday, 29 February 12pm - 4pm.
Bay of Plenty Indian community will deliver performances. Traditional food and interactive family fun for all to enjoy. The festival is about sharing a simply-fun-and-safe-for-all-ages experience with the neighbourboods, teaching one another about forgiveness, brotherhood and cutting loose without the need of drugs. The free event is committed to sustainability and is drug and alcohol free.
The Jordan Park will come to life with vibrant colours, the sights and sounds of Bharatanatyam, Bollywood and Punjabi dancing and the delicious tastes and aromas of traditional vegetarian delights and Indian street food. The event will be interactive with opportunities for all the family to get involved with throwing dry coloured powders, beautiful henna and face painting.
In keeping with the family theme, the event will be drug and alcohol free with a strong sustainability theme and the food vendors using only compostable plates and cutlery.
