While most people in Manhattan last Saturday were decked out in green in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, the day also marked the fifth annual “Rang Barse” hosted by IN Group Events. The event, which started at Pier 16 in the South Street Seaport, was attended by more than 500 people, mostly of South Asian decent, to celebrate “Holi,” the traditional “Indian Festival of Color” that marks the beginning of spring by people throwing colored powder and water onto one another. The crowd boarded the Princess cruise ship for a tour around the southern tip of Manhattan that ended at Hudson River Park.
