Holi

Holi

The  Holi Festival of Colours. Capetonians and the Holi Festival of Colours 2013 came together to celebrate our rainbow nation and all its different colours. Sahara Park Newlands has seen its fair share of colourful crowds while hosting numerous domestic and international cricket matches as well as the glamorous IPL tournament in 2009. These crowds were, however, pale in comparison to the excited crowd that descended on the Sahara Park Newlands grounds on Saturday, 12 October 2013, for the Holi Festival 2013. With the majority dressed in white, the crowd looked forward to lashings and dustings of colour powder that has made this event so popular not only in its native India, but also internationally in vibrant cities such as Berlin and now Cape Town. DJ Kirsti set the pace for the day with a smashing set, which played into the first countdown and got the crowd so excited that colour powder was thrown earlier than scheduled.
