An exciting event called Holi Paint Festival is scheduled to take place in Kiev on June 30, 2013. As you can tell from the name, the main element of the fest is paint.
Participants of the festival will be able to paint on each other and throw paints at other guests. In this way no one will be left unpainted!
The festival will also feature wakeboarding competitions, water battles and a paint throwing flash mob. Moreover, everyone will be able to attend exhibitions of modern artists. Children will visit art and dancing workshops. Holi festival will end with a rock concert and an evening performance. Park of Friendship of Peoples has been chosen as the festival venue.
Holi festival started in India, when sorcerers and healers threw healing herbs at people to stop diseases from spreading. As time passed, the Indian festival became more and more popular, and now it is often taking place in several post-USSR countries. (c) ua-traveling
