Due to organizational matters, the GET decided to include the Color Fest (also known by the Indian HOLI festival) within the annual Unity Fair at Seattle Central College. Unity Fair is the biggest student leadership event of the year and celebrates our unique diversity and accomplishments at Seattle Central.
We are bringing the colorful spirit of India to this years' Unity Fair!
Enjoy fun music and dancing — and of course the throwing of colors!
Important notes and request:
— Powder bags will be provided, please don't bring your own!
— Wear white! This is the best way to let the colors shine.
— Don't wear your best clothes! Stains or remains of color might be possible
— All ingredients of the colors are FD&C and D&C approved. However, if you have asthma, another breathing issues or an allergy against corn starch it might be better to avoid this event, or at least wear a mask and don't stay in the middle f.
— Do not wear contact lenses
— Do not throw colors on any passing car, pedestrians or bystanders!
Tips for handling the color powder:
— To avoid and/or minimize color stains, shake out all dry powder out of your hair and clothes as best as possible before stepping into a shower, or throwing your clothes in the wash.
— Please do not throw colors into people’s eyes or mouth. The most fun way is to rub the colors, into the hair, back of the neck, and cheeks. Hair covers, sunglasses, and/or dust mask are recommended.
