MOUNDSVILLE, W. Va. —
About 1,000 people attended the Festival of Colors Saturday at the Palace of Gold in Moundsville as a way of celebrating life.
The festival has roots in Hindu stories and is traditionally celebrated every spring by Hindus. The event included food, live music and a showering of several colors, which are used to represent the colors of life in nature.
“This festival is not a religious festival. It has a root in religion, but this is a festival for everyone — all classes of people from different backgrounds are invited here to join us,” said Vrindavana Das, the festival organizer. “It’s a festival for people who want to enjoy their life, share love for each other.”
Organizers said they plan to hold the event again next year.
