You are never too old to be a child in San Pedro

Just a few of those who enjoyed Holifun at San Pedro

A CRAZE which sees children and adults throw environmentally safe colour paint dust, based on a popular Indian Hindu festival which celebrates the victory of good over evil is sweeping across Spain and it landed in San Pedro de Alcantara on the evening of Saturday August 27.

After registering on line and paying in advance a large number of paint enthusiasts followed a three kilometre walk along the beach front before getting down to the real business of eating, drinking, having fun and getting covered in different colour paint dust known in India as Gular.

Starting at 8pm, the Holifun Festival lasted until 4am with the crowd enjoying music from a number of DJs, although the main fun was trying to see how many different colours each participant could be hit with and how many friends could be dusted as well.
