Update 12:40 p.m. – Due to inclement weather forecasted for the area, Elon's Holi celebration has been rescheduled again for Friday, May 3 at 4 p.m. The headline of this story has been updated to reflect this change.
Elon University’s Holi celebration — originally set for Friday, April 5 — has been postponed until Friday, April 26, at 4 p.m. due to inclement weather concerns, according to Carrie Seigler, multifaith coordinator for Elon's Truitt Center.
The Holi celebration this Friday will instead be replaced by a Shabbat dinner at 7 p.m. in the McBride Gathering Space inside the Numen Lumen Pavilion. The dinner will include “Indian dishes,” Seigler said in an email.
While the festival in many countries is generally held at the end of February or the beginning of March, Elon’s Holi celebration traditionally happens at the beginning of April. Holi, also known as the “festival of colors,” is a yearly Hindu celebration that marks the end of winter.
