Bishop Ranch Holi Celebration 2013
The spring festival of Holi – which is celebrated by Hindus primarily in India and Nepal – was observed at the
business park in San Ramon last month. This “festival of colors” traditionally involves the throwing of brightly colored powdered pigment to celebrate the onset of a joyous and vibrant spring season.Bishop Ranch hosted the San Ramon community and neighboring East Bay cities to a free festival in one of their building’s parking lots on a sunny Friday afternoon. We were honored to be a part of such a fun and festive event, bringing in some of our best
, a bindi artist, and face painters to treat the community to free body art. We also brought a talented and colorful Dhol drummer to play during the pigment throwing, which really set the tone for an exciting celebration. Our rockin’
played contemporary Indian hits which quickly turned into a dance party for all! Along with our talented artists and entertainers, Bishop Ranch brought in food trucks and a local Indian dance company who put on a great performance. Toss in some colorful pigment throwing and you have yourself a Holi celebration!
Many thanks to Bishop Ranch for bringing us on board for this first annual event – we look forward to next year’s!
