Thousands of revelers took part in the 6th annual “Day of Colors” in Thermi, near the northern port city of Thessaloniki.

The “Day of Colors” is a celebration of joy, organized by the group SFINA.

According to the organizers, it is a day dedicated to human communication, life, love and unity. The celebrations begin at noon, and gradually develop with team games & colors exploding.

‘The Day of Colors’ was influenced by ‘Holi’; which is a Hindi spring festival that is celebrated in India & Nepal. However; in Greece, the celebration has no religious meaning & the only goal is to create smiles, SFINA says.
