    I’m new to Portland and I love to dance. I’ve never attended a Holi party, but I’ve done a color run and think this will be even better.

    Color me intrigued! Rather than stay home on Sunday and do laundry like usual, I’d love nothing more than to don my white apparel and dirty myself up with Gulal…(and then see how well my laundry detergent works when trying to get the powders out of my clothes the next weekend).

    My Sunday needs color! I would love to spend this Sunday dancing in *color* with many other happy people. My spirit needs it *SO* badly.
