Cape Town Holi One Festival photos and video
The Holi One Festival took place on the Grand Parade in Cape Town yesterday. An assortment of muscians performed throughout the afternoon and evening, while an even larger assortment of colours were released into the air every hour.
The Holi One Festival is traditionally held in India to celebrate the coming of spring, but other nations around the world have now adopted it for the colourful fun it provides. See the video below for an idea of how it works.
Thousands of people who arrived at yesterday's Holi One Festival wearing white, left the Grand Parade multi-coloured. See photos below, taken by Skye Grove.
March is generally Cape Town's busiest month in terms of events. See our events section for details about what's coming up.
