Holi Festival of Colours

Yuri Smitiuk/ТАSS

Holi, the Hindu spring festival, happens off and on at various outdoor venues around Ekaterinburg all summer long. Guests of the Holi Festival of Colours buy sachets of colourful dry paint made from corn flour, and toss the multicoloured paint mixes at each other. Dry paint forms amusing ornaments when it gets mixed. Holi paint easily washes off of the body and clothes. All this fun is accompanied by live music. There is a market on the premises, selling Hindu clothes, spices and decorative items. Master classes are taught. Street food and non-alcoholic cocktails are available on the festival grounds.
