The Hindu festival of color, or Holi, which celebrates spring and forgiveness, will take place this weekend in Yuba City.

The Sri Narayan Hindu Temple will host the annual Holi festival Sunday, offering "colorful" experiences for participants.

"It's the spring festival that celebrates color, and it's about letting people put color on you and putting color on them," said Kinny Chatkara, a long-time member of the temple. "It's a day to forgive, let bygones be bygones and new beginnings."

Chatkara said the public is welcome to join in the festivities and to come prepared wearing clothes that will get colorful. Food will be served at the event.

"In India, they use water color but that can get messy, so we use dry color," Chatkara said. "When you put colors on someone and let them put colors on you, you're forgiving them for issues or grievances in the past. It's a brand new beginning."
