UNT’s World Echoes and Multicultural Center hosted a gathering Friday at McKenna Park to celebrate Holi, a Hindu holiday that symbolizes the beginning of spring. About 30 students met at the park to participate and covered each other with pink, blue, yellow and green powdered paint to celebrate the end of winter. The event concluded with students dancing to popular Indian songs to honor the holiday and their culture.
