Some people in Lafayette are covered in paint following the Lafayette Holi Festival.

The festival is just wrapping up at Girard Park.

Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors, is a popular ancient Hindu festival that is predominantly celebrated in India and Nepal.

The festival is organized by the Acadiana Indian Association and is fun for the whole family.

It must be said, however, that those in attendance shouldn’t wear their “church clothes.”
