California: Nepalese living in California celebrated Holi festival with a great zeal. They marked the festival by smearing colors on one another's face at Garin Regional Park. People from old to young age enjoyed the festival with enthusiasm.

The Fagu Poornima celebration begins with a Holika dahan or making a bonfire commemorating the death of Holika on the eve of Holi, the symbol of triumph of good over evil. The next day, people enjoy smearing one another with different colors including abir or red vermilion powder.

Among various cultural festivals celebrated in Nepal and abroad, the Fagu Poornima carries its own specialty and significance.
