Holi color, corn starch-based powders made in India were tossed at the Festival of Color in downtown Redmond Saturday to welcome in spring. The festival does not recognize any bars of caste, class or creed. Drenched in colors, everybody comes to resemble each other losing their original self say those putting on the festival. All differences dissolve in the colors and people celebrated as a band rocked on chanting, "Hare, Hare, Krishna, Krishna."
