UIANE Celebrates Holi 2018! The Vibrant festival of Colors!

The United Indian Association of New England hosted its annual Holi celebration on Sunday, March 11th from 12pm to 4pm in Newton, MA. The event is open to everyone in the Community, and this year, had a record breaking number of participants. The UIANE had such a big turnout, that they expanded the event to include two adjacent ballrooms instead of one, to ensure everyone was comfortable.  The event began with UIANE Board members greeting guests and welcoming them with festive and colorful silk-flower necklaces and floral hair clips to add to the fun. The crowd then moved from the second ballroom full of kid’s crafts and tables for all the youngsters to dance and play, to the Grand ballroom, where they were impressed by a huge dance floor, colorful tables decorated for Holi, and the amazing beats of DJ Rishi.

A full-course delicious buffet lunch was served throughout the event, and many partygoers raved about how good and plentiful the food was. The afternoon was kicked off by a few words of introduction by Rakashi Chand, the President of the UIANE, and Aditi Soni, the Vice President. Ms. Chand thanked her Executive Committee, Board of Directors and Board of Advisors for all their help to make this event possible. As a Special Guest Emcee Shalini Kashyap, Mrs. India New England 2017, greeted the crowd and posed for pictures. The crowd then enjoyed two dance performances by local children, and the dance floor was opened for everyone. The DJ played great songs while the live Dhol player got everyone out of their seats and onto the dance floor! Everyone enjoyed great food, great music, great dancing, making new friends and reconnecting with old friends.

At 3pm the crowd was ready to play Holi! By divine blessings, it was a beautiful day to be outside in the sun and play Holi! The crowd had a fantastic time throwing colors on one another and dancing to the live Dhol! When it was over everyone was smiling and laughing and no one wanted to go home. The UIANE hopes everyone will join again next year for an even bigger and better Holi celebration! The United India Association of New England welcomes all Indians in New England to participate in our many events. We are also looking to expand our events and services for the Community, so please email us, call us and message us! We would love to hear from you!
