If you’ve never heard of Holi, you’re in for a colorful treat: Also known as the “Festival of Colors” or the “Festival of Love,” the Hindu holiday celebrates winter’s transition into spring and the triumph of good over evil, and is considered a time to start fresh for the year, forgiving old slights and mending strained relationships. As part of the festivities, people smear each other from head to toe with brightly colored powders.
On March 25 this year, Holi Indian Cuisine in Dothan will host the largest Holi celebration in Southeast Alabama, with kid-friendly activities, music, vendors, those famous colors, and a buffet (from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.) of the restaurant’s mouthwatering Indian delicacies. Holi Indian Cuisine’s menu features both vegetarian and nonvegetarian dishes, all prepared by the restaurant’s India-born chef in the traditional tandoor (clay oven) and kadhai (Indian wok). The Holi fun begins at 3 p.m. on Monday; kids can come out to have their faces painted and meet members of the Dothan Fire Department. Although the event will be held at the Dothan restaurant on Ross Clark Circle, Holi Indian Cuisine has a second location in Panama City for Panhandle visitors looking for their curry and naan fix!
