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 â€śHoliâ€ť is neither religious nor secular â€“ 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 yearâ€™s Festival.
One of the festival-goers exclaimed: â€śIt 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.â€ť
Many of the festival-goers resolved to â€śdefinitely come back next year and bring my friends.â€ť
