Festival of colors in Erbil

The Kurdistan color festival included Kurdish and western dancing and live music. The festival goers danced, sang, laughed while jumping up and down. The festival runs from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. It includes primarily a color festival, activities for kids and food stalls.”We held the first [color] festival last year, one that was very successful. So this year we wanted to expand it even further,” one organizer said, referring to other activities for the festival goers such as music and entertainment.
