ESCONDIDO — Celebrating the Indian tradition of Holi, welcoming in spring and the passing of winter, revelers at Grape Day Park on Saturday threw their worries to the wind in the form of colored cornstarch, drenching themselves and anyone nearby in colors of purple, green, yellow and pink.

India’s Holi Festival of Color is typically celebrated in late February or early March, which helps to bridge social gaps and to renew relationships, often through hugging.

This is the second year in a row the Holi Festival of Colors was hosted at the park. A second event is scheduled for Oceanside’s Rotary Park June 13.
