Colors of joy: Richmond Hill celebrates 35th annual Phagwah Parade

The 35th annual Phagwah Parade in Queens made history on Sunday by celebrating two female grand marshals for the first time ever.

On March 26, Assembly Member Jenifer Rajkumar and Bahen Vedo, an executive member of the Hindu Mandirs Inc., both led the way for dozens of floats in Little Guyana.  

The Holi Parade, also known as the festival of colors, began at noon on 133rd Street and Liberty Avenue where hundreds lined the streets tossing multicolored bags of powder at each other while others fired water guns filled with colored liquid to symbolize that everyone is connected by one spirit.
