More images from the Phagwah Parade on Sunday, March 11th, 2012 in Richmond Hill, Queens.  This annual celebration in Queens is one of the biggest of its kind in North America - tens of thousands were said to make it out to celebrate and wish everyone a Happy Holi!

On Sunday, March 11th I attended my first Holi celebration and Phagwah Parade! Holi is a Hindu “color” festival that celebrates unity and the coming of spring.  If you go, you should expect to have dye of all of the colors of the rainbow thrown at or rubbed all over you.  Baby powder is big, too.  It was so much fun!
