Video: MUW Celebrates Holi Festival of Colors

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) -It was a good turn out this afternoon At Mississippi University for Women as MSMS students got together to celebrate the Holi Festival of Colors. The tradition is celebrated in India and is a religious spring festival celebrated by Hindus. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring’s abundant colors and saying farewell to winter. Students gathered at Dem Field dressed in all white ready to splash their colors. Bags of colors were sold for 2 dollars each and all the money raised went to the Asian student Association Club at MSMS.
