Holi is a Hindu holiday which is also enthusiastically celebrated in Rotterdam. Because of the storm this years edition has been cancelled!
Holi is the Hindu start of the new year. People throw colored powder at each other, so that differences in race or religion are no longer visible.
The red powder symbolises victory, and the green powder represents hope and faith in the future. The holiday begins with a parade in Charlois, followed by a party in Zuiderpark.
