Brooklyn, New York, 4/28/2018: The people of New York need no reason to celebrate as they soak into the shades of the most colorful festival in the world, Holi. Holi, also known as the festival of color, is a commemoration of Unity and Brotherhood celebrated to break all the barriers causing discrimination as people of different color come together and paint each other with a colorful fight so every individual looks the same. The past Saturday, a diverse group of New Yorkers were painted in the colors of Holi where about about 250 to 300 people gathered in Brooklyn to celebrate music, dance and colors.

 People made the most of the colorful event by getting their photos clicked on the Photo Bus.
