On Sunday, March 24, the Indo-Canadian Organization of Montreal (ICOM) will bring lots of colour and a little warmth to Vaudreuil-Dorion as it marks the fifth edition of the festival of colours ‘Holi Hai’ taking place at the Centre Multisports, 3093 Boulevard de la Gare. Free workshops from 1 to 3 p.m. include cooking, crafts, classical music, yoga, classical and Kathak dance, and folk dance workout. Kiosks offer henna tattoos and Indian food for a small charge. Not to be missed is the traditional show and the colour throwing tradition outdoors to celebrate diversity, harmony, joy, and mutual support. Holi colour throwing will take place at 3:30 p.m. in the parking lot to the beats of Jannat Productionz and young Vaudreuil-Dorion percussionist, Anmol Rattan. To obtain coloured powder and celebrate with us outside, participants should join the different workshops and visit the kiosks. Participants are encouraged to wear clothes they are ready to dirty. Garbage bags, while quantities last, will be distributed to cover car seats or to dispose of soiled clothes. For more info contact Jasmine Sharma at (514) 409-1670 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
