    So, we get to throw colors at each other in the celebration of spring. What!? Is this for real? I’m googling this. Holi hai. Seems legit.

  2. Robin February 23, 2015 at 5:00 pm #

    I met a lady last June on the Pedalpalooza Holi ride and I know she would LOVE to go to this Holi Hai dance party with me; I can’t afford the tickets though. :-(

  3. Sarah leong February 23, 2015 at 11:54 pm #

    I have been to 3 of them and have a great time at them. Plus I know prashant he was a teacher of mine at pccand he is a wonderful person.

  4. E.A. February 24, 2015 at 1:56 pm #

    Dance party, please! I am in desperate need of spring.

  5. Kelly February 24, 2015 at 2:03 pm #

    I attended last year and it was SO MUCH FUN!!! Pretty broke these days, so I would love to be able to attend again if I were granted some tix!!

  6. Jennifer February 24, 2015 at 9:41 pm #

    I have never attended one of these and would love to experience Holi Hai with my best friends in my hometown. Plus, this event falls on the weekend of my birthday and it would be a great way to kick off birthday festivities!!

  7. Robin February 24, 2015 at 10:34 pm #

    Because this singe mom needs a break.

  8. Macy February 25, 2015 at 1:13 pm #

  10. Jackie P February 26, 2015 at 6:25 am #

    I’m visiting Portland for a week (first time ever!) and I think this festival would really enhance my view and perspective of the city!

  11. Lisa February 26, 2015 at 9:50 am #

    I would love to attend for my second year and celebrate Holi Hai! Prashant is such a fantastic entertainer/entrepreneur. Cheers!

  12. Benito Juarez February 26, 2015 at 9:51 am #

    Holi hai, Batman! Color me excited (especially for some free tix)! :D

  13. Jennifer February 26, 2015 at 11:44 am #

    Jai ho and Holi Hai! How awesome! I would absolutely love an excuse to utterly ruin an entirely white outfit with bright colors…and, OK, I’ll admit, to also throw colored powders at complete strangers. Plus, it’s a way to really test the laundry detergent I use. Purex, are you up for the post-Holi Hai challenge? I know *I* am!

  14. thomas February 26, 2015 at 1:25 pm #

    Make me a winner! It would be a first…. =[

  24. eisen laucik March 2, 2015 at 4:17 pm #

    I have never been to a Holi Hai festival and my Nepalese roomates want me to go but I need tickets. Can the odds be ever in my favor????

  25. Amy B March 2, 2015 at 8:15 pm #

    Wanna surprise my friend Tammy with tickets because we missed out on the early passes

  26. Burn March 3, 2015 at 4:54 am #

    I’ve never seen my bestie happier than when she’s dancing to Bhangra. I would LOVE to be able to take her to something that might lighten her spirit as she’s had a rough go of it lately. Holi Hai seems to be just what that embodies :)

  27. Danielle March 3, 2015 at 8:38 am #

    This sounds like a fantastic dance party.

  28. PexxyJ March 3, 2015 at 10:06 am #

    Good on ya’! We are getting ready to get our Bollywood groove on again! Can’t wait for the gulal colors and fun. We are bringing a group down to the party! Pick me for the tickets!!!!

  29. Rhawnie March 3, 2015 at 11:24 pm #

    This sounds incredibly fun! I have never had the chance to attend something like this before!!!

  36. CarolineYR March 5, 2015 at 3:18 pm #

    Ah Man! I want to go cuz …
    1) I haven’t danced with Prashant in YEARS and I miss it something awful !
    2) I went to my first Hindu wedding this year, the bride & bridesmaids were beautifully hennaed and now I’ve got a hankering to get henna’d.
    3) I’ve got the perfect white clothes…

    BUT I’m sick as a dog, can I have tickets for 2016????

  37. Jessica Beltin March 5, 2015 at 4:12 pm #

    What a great event to celebrate! Such a fun and amazing experience. If I win it will be my first time! Pick me please!

  38. Naomi G March 5, 2015 at 5:17 pm #

    My husband and I just came into town for vacation, but heard about the Holi Hai event from friend. We would love to end our vacation with attending the fesitval of colors!!!

  39. Michael Tindall March 5, 2015 at 5:51 pm #

    Pick me! I just missed out on presale and I’m not sure I can make it there at 8 to get in line

  40. Matt March 5, 2015 at 9:54 pm #

    Party of the year (that I missed out on buying tickets to)! I have a friend visiting from out of town, and would love to introduce him to Portland at such a cool event.

  41. alisha March 5, 2015 at 9:56 pm #

    I started my week with 2 funerals and a car accident. Sorry to use the “debbie downer” card, but I would LOVE to end my week with a beautiful dance party!

  42. Jenette March 5, 2015 at 11:09 pm #

    I’ve been to Jai Ho dance parties many times, but never the Holi Hai celebration, and I haven’t danced at all for over a year and a half. I was sick, and then in a car wreck, but now I have been declared fully ready to party! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my own kind of Spring.

  43. Erika March 5, 2015 at 11:14 pm #

    Please oh please pick me!!! The hubbie and I need a night out. Went to buy the pre-sale tickets and they are sold out. This looks like such a fun time

  44. Vishal March 6, 2015 at 9:51 am #

    Holi has been fun in itself and personalities like Prashant who have introduced, induced and fused Holi to western culture, as colors festivals all around make it even more fun! Jai Ho

    • Vishal March 6, 2015 at 9:53 am #

      P.S. My girlfriend and I are driving to Portland from Seattle to attend this !

  45. Chelsea March 6, 2015 at 12:44 pm #

    I’ve known Prashant for years and admire everything about him. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to the Festival of Colors Event but have never been able to make it til this year. I’d hate to miss out on it!

  46. James March 6, 2015 at 2:24 pm #

    I am embarking on a top-secret mission to invade the rainbow kingdom hidden beyond the clouds, and this will be the perfect way to acquire a disguise ◕ ‿ ◕

  47. Marshall March 6, 2015 at 3:04 pm #

    Pick me!

  48. Prashant March 9, 2015 at 2:50 pm #
