Didn’t get a ticket to Sirphey’s Holi 2021 event? No longer a problem! Given recent vaccination numbers and relaxing guidance, Sirphey has lifted the cap on attendees.

It’s time to start thinking in color! And NOTHING brings color like Holi, the Indian festival of Spring celebrated with a giant color fight. Whether you want to douse your friends and family in color out of love or because they don’t refill the toilet paper roll, now’s your chance!

The event takes place at 11 a.m. today, June 26 on the lawn and parking lot of Sirphey’s downtown Los Alamos location at 1793 Deacon St.

Bollywood music will fill the air, courtesy of DJ Roger Anaya as you dance and bombard yourself and loved ones in color.

“Solid black or white clothes will really allow the colors to pop,” SIrphey’s owner Prashant Jain said.

Sirphey will have colorful curries, lassis and boba teas available, and guests are encouraged to patronize Sirphey’s neighbor, the VFW.

All guests are asked to follow CDC guidelines regarding masks, vaccinations and indoor capacity limits at both Sirphey and the VFW.

This event is free and open to the public. A donation box will be set up at the event to allow for voluntary donations toward the event’s expense.
