This video shows UCSC's 5th annual Holi Festival. Unfortunately, I was not able to film an intro because of the dust getting into my camera. However, Holi, known as the Festival of Colors or as the Festival of love, is an ancient Hindu religious festival. The Holi festival has created a positive environment at UCSC during the spring where we can see students celebrating love through colors. Students are seen playfully throwing colored powder up in the air and on other students regardless of their race and ethnicity. The festival has a significance of bringing people together through laughter and bridging the social gap between students on campus. The Holi Festival is sponsored by the UCSC Student Union Assembly, Indian Student Association, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and the Dean of Students Office.
