HUGELY SUCCESSFUL FESTIVAL OF COLORS AT THE PALACE OF GOLD
(MOUNDSVILLE, WEST VIRGINIA) – Yesterday, Sat. Sept. 15, the Palace of Gold near Moundsville WV hosted its first Festival of Colors, which was a great success.
There were over 1,080 people who came through. This resulted in large, exuberant crowds of happy, dancing, singing, color-throwing participants.
The Festival of Colors, based on an ancient Indian traditional festival called “Holi” is neither religious nor secular – it is a gathering of people united in the desire to celebrate life, where everyone is invited to join in.
New Vrindaban, home of the Palace of Gold, sponsored this year’s Festival.
One of the festival-goers exclaimed: “It was an awesome show.. There were about 12 of us in our group. We had a wonderful time. Best time that I had in a long time.”
Many of the festival-goers resolved to “definitely come back next year and bring my friends.”
