TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Pittsburg State University in southeast Kansas is bringing the Holi festival to the state.

The university announced Thursday that its Indian Students Association will host its annual Holi celebration Saturday.

Holi is a Hindu festival observed at the end of the winter season and marks the victory of good over evil. Groups of people traditionally celebrate it by dancing and throwing colorful powders and dyed water at each other.

The association will provide the powders and music, and the event will take place at 1 p.m. near the soccer fields in the Bicknell Sports Complex in Pittsburg, Kansas. It will be open to both students and the general public.
