The popular Holi Festival organised by SDS Youth KL is back and with 2,000 kilos of colours, it’s going to be even bigger, wetter and more colourful where they’re even going to try for the record of ‘The Largest Holi Celebration in Malaysia’ for the Malaysian Book of Records. That’s not all they have to offer on that day as there’ll be talented DJ’s and local performers as well authentic Northern Indian cuisine.
