Expect colour-filled balloons and foam machines at CPF’s Holi Festival.
EVENT organisers, Connecting People Forum (CPF), is back with another foam party. The last one was at Aqua in January, and now they are ready for the first edition of their Holi Foam Festival. Expect machine sprayed foam at the outdoor event, at the beach side of the Radisson Blu Resort Temple Bay Mamallapuram. There will also be balloons filled with coloured powders, intended to burst and spread gulal. “The powders we are going to use are organic and have been sourced from the city as well as Bengaluru. They are safe and do not react with the skin,” says Felix Calis, co-founder of the group, along with Ajish Joy and Michael Rua Alex. As for the foam, Calis reveals that the machines are sourced from Delhi. “We have not received a single complaint about the foam from anyone who attended our previous parties,” he assures.
Over 1,000 invited
This event is the first in line of many, as the group is planning to make it an annual one. Over 1,000 people are expected to attend, and why not? As, besides dancing under the shower panels in your beachwear, revellers can also shake a leg to a dose of EDM and commercial music by some of the city’s most popular DJs, namely, Rudy, Arjun Nair, Parthiban and others. “We have also brought DJ Prashanth Amir on board. He has assisted us with production, right from our very first foam party at Aqua,” Calis shares, adding that there will be counters of kati rolls, pasta, sandwiches, biryani, barbeque snacks and ice cream set up, to add to the food provided by the hotel.
