Over 5000 attended the festival

Over 5000 people partook in various activities in this year's colourful Holi Festival held at the KCCA Grounds in Kampala.

Rajasthani Association, the Indian Association of Uganda in partnership with the Indian High Commission, Uganda and Kansai Plascon, organized the Hindu festival of colours, love, a time-honored tradition symbolizing the triumph of good over evil and the arrival of the spring season

The festival displayed the rich cultural fabric of the Indian community. Children and youth engaged in spraying coloured powder solutions known as ‘gulal’ at each other, while adults smeared dry coloured powder known as ‘abir’ on each other's faces, embodying the spirit of friendship and celebration.

One of the highlights of the event was the raffle draw where lucky winners walked away with exciting prizes, including smart TV sets and a return ticket to Mumbai, India. The prizes were handed over by Plascon's brand manager, Daniel Kayongo, who expressed his delight in supporting such community initiatives.

"Plascon Uganda is proud to be a part of this vibrant celebration of Holi, which embodies the spirit of togetherness and joy. We believe in giving back to the communities we operate in, and this event has always provided a wonderful opportunity to do so," said Kayongo.
