One of the most common themes of spring is the bright colors it brings. You can celebrate this vibrancy in bloom for a good cause with a festive Holi parade coming to Atlanta this month. Lots of good vibes, dancing and an explosion of color will take over the city soon and it will likely be one of the liveliest festivals in Atlanta in 2020.

Holi is a Hindu-based celebration originating in India that welcomes spring and brings people together in the process.

With explosions of paints and powders, the iconic color fights at these fests symbolize the excitement of both warm weather and bringing people together.

You can get a true sense of community at this year's CRY Atlanta Holi parade on March 21 at Shakerag Park. What's typically a baseball field will transform into a social gathering filled with culture, cause, live music and unmatched brightness.

CRY (Children's Rights and You) is a non-profit organization that strives to help all kids reach their full potential and accomplish their dreams by ensuring basic rights, needs and protection for underprivileged children.

Tickets are only $10 if you purchase them now and $12 at the door. The parade will feature a live DJ that will be mixing up hip-hop, dance and classic Bollywood tunes.

There will be lots of invigorating Bollywood dances fueled by Dholak drums that may make you feel like you're actually in India.

Come hungry because food and drink will be available for purchase as well. If you're feeling lucky, you can also enter the raffle to snag some prizes.

From 11 a.m. through the afternoon, you'll be dancing the day away in the sunshine, knowing that you're supporting a beneficial cause.
