A young participant rides on her father's shoulders as hundreds of people dance and enjoy CRY's Holi celebration at Bellevue's Downtown Park on Saturday, March 22, 2014. Holi, the ancient Hindu festival of color, is celebrated each year in February or March. Participants of all ages celebrate by dousing each other with brightly colored cornstarch powder or water. Childrens' Rights and You, CRY, is a nonprofit, volunteer-run to raise funds and awareness for underprivileged children.
