Spring is in the air -- and so is a multitude of colors!

  • Exit 167 Management Group presents The Festival of Colors -- Rang Barse 2017.
  • Based on a traditional Indian Festival of Holi, the organizers want this event to appeal to everyone and all ages -- and BTW, kids under five get in free.
  • There's a DJ with music playing constantly, so feel free to dance while the colors fly.  The colors are corn starch-based -- totally safe and organic.
  • The event takes place at the McLean County Fairgrounds in Bloomington on Saturday, April 15 from 11:30 Am to 4:30 PM.
  • Bring along a change of clothes for after the festival, to keep the colors off your car seats.WGLT depends on financial support from users to bring you stories and interviews like this one.
