Holi Moli Patriots!

Sometimes we wear a lot more colors than our traditional green and gold. The ancient Hindu festival of colors, Holi, signifies the arrival of spring, the triumph of good over evil, and crosses all boundaries. Patriots got into the spirit by tossing vibrant powders at one another, creating a rainbow cloud over Presidents Park.
