Locals celebrate Holi day

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

The Patel family have brought the rich Indian festival of Holi to Deniliquin for a fourth year.

Jimmi and Kritika Patel held the festival of colours at their home providing more than 1200 water balloons, water fight buckets, water pistols and a range of coloured powder for more than 180 locals to enjoy.

Guests wore white shirts as canvases and were left covered head to toe in dyes of all shades of bright colours.

The Patels hold the event at their east Deniliquin home where children and adults enjoy the activities of colour and a variety of home cooked meals.
