One of the most popular holidays in the world, the Indian Holi festival celebrates the arrival of spring with dancing, eating, and throwing colored powder and water all over yourself and everyone else. You can get in on the messy fun—the Bharat student group at the U of M will be celebrating Holi this Saturday afternoon at the East River Flats. They’ll have a limited amount of free colors, so you’ll want to get there early or bring your own, and don’t wear any clothes you’re worried about staining. Saturday, 1-5 PM. Free. —Max Huglaunch
