Colour in The Sun, inspired by the traditional Holi colour festival in India, venture to Carnival City on Friday, December 16, National Reconciliation Day. Colour in the Sun will bring together thousands of colour-crazy revellers for an afternoon of spectacular entertainment, sets by well known DJ’s such as Dj Kent, Kwesta, Dimplez, Twins on Decks, Busi N, Major League and many more.
“Celebrate national Reconciliation Day with awesome music, a super charged vibe and loads of colour. Laugh, dance and play the day away in the spirit of togetherness for which this international festival is renowned,” said Michelle Smith, Marketing Manager at Carnival City.
Colour in The Sun is the premier colour festival promoting unity and equality while celebrating youth, togetherness and fun. This festival derives from an ancient Hindu festival celebrating springtime, love and of course, colours. It has recently spread from its origins in India and Nepal to parts of Europe as a non-religious day to reflect equality and togetherness. Against a festive backdrop of song and dance participants play, chase and colour each other with bright, dry powders.
All colours consist of corn starch and an aromatic substance. The colourants differentiate per colour. Aromatic substances include lavender, lavender oil, sage, dill, 2-undecanone, chamomile, rosemary, rosemary oil and acetic acid. The colours are red, green, pink, orange, blue and yellow.
