There Was Purple Rain (and Every Other Shade of Rain) at Holi NYC’s Color Festival

This past weekend, hitting the powder didn’t mean catching the Snow Bus to Whiteface Mountain. It’s finally spring, see, and what better way to celebrate the season than by throwing colored powder at a total stranger? That’s exactly what happened at the fifth annual Holi NYC, a tribute to Holi Phagwa, the Hindu festival of colors. The riotous celebration of spring, which had been held in East Flatbush in the past, was right in Bushwick this year, meaning locals didn’t have to ruin their Uber rating by leaving orange butt-prints on some poor bastard’s backseat. There were also some awesome powder-blasting canons this year, which turned the skies into one big rainbow bagel. Click through our shots to see all the local color.
