We'll meet at Starbucks before the event and prate some of the signs we may be using that day such as colors. Starbucks 11790 Firestone Blvd, Norwalk, CA 90650 Then we'll head over to the festival. You will need bandanas for your mouth (so you don't get chalk/colors inside your mouth and nose) Money to buy colors insideChange of clothing afterwards. ( you WILL need it) from the website "In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a colorful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other. Though liquid colors are used in India (where it’s warm) we prohibit them, as we don’t want anyone to catch cold on account of the festival. Dry is better for photographs as well." The festival runs all day with international music - Indian influenced and or traditional. What to know (from the website) "Festival goers are advised to think twice before going into the middle of the crowd when the colors are first thrown. If you have not been before or have asthma, being smack in the middle of the crowd will be a challenge. Stay to the edges, and have a cloth to cover your nose and mouth for the first three minutes. We will have dust masks for sale at .25 cents. Under no circumstances should small children be in the middle of the crowd, unless high on the shoulders of their fathers, and wearing the right protection.Do’s and Don’ts:" http://www.festivalofcolorsusa.com/festival-of-colors/f-a-q/ Tickets are $3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfOI8W4h1lc Colors in Sign Language
