IT’S time for fun and laughter next weekend when the Hindu Holi celebration takes place at the Marburg Sports Complex on Saturday, March 11 from 5.30pm.

Holi (also called Holaka or Phagwa) is an annual festival celebrated on the day after the full moon in the Hindu month of Phalguna.

Hindus attend a public bonfire, spray friends and family with coloured powder and water, a time for fun, laughter, indulge in merrymaking and generally “let loose.”

Holi is an ideal celebration especially for our South African Community, the rainbow nation in full colour. During Holi celebration everybody becomes one and equal.

The Shree Hanuman Sanathan Dharma Sabha Mandir together with various religious organisations invites the public to the Annual Holi Celebration.

Entertainment provided by Arshivaard Sungeeth, sizzling local dancers and DJs.There will be lots of entertainment for the young and old. Supper will be served.
