A traditional Hindu festival is set to light up Lake Anne Plaza next month.

The inaugural Holi Festival, which is sponsored by local CBD business OmBaked, will take place on March 23 from noon to 4 p.m.

“We’re thrilled to bring the joy of Holi to Lake Anne Plaza,” OmBaked CEO Radhika Murari said. “Rallying behind the Women Empowerment Foundation makes this celebration not just fun, but meaningful too!”

Holi — sometimes known as the Festival of Colors or Love — is celebrated across India. It often involves attendees throwing colored powder to mark the beginning of spring, the renewal of friendship, and letting go of resentment.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Women Empowerment Foundation, a nonprofit that provides domestic violence counseling, educational programs, workshops and other support services to women.

The festival is free, and vendors can apply online. It will include traditional tunes, food vendors, crafts and henna.
