Holi Festival in Rishikesh, India

Everything but my camera was covered in colorful powder after walking through the town of Rishikesh in India. Everyone understood I didn’t mind getting covered in unknown chemical colors but my camera would.
What is Holi festival all about? I have no idea but everyone around was happy and full of festival spirit even though it occasionally seemed to build towards total chaos.
