Milpitas Mayor Carmen Montano dancing and celebrating Holi with residents. “This is a great opportunity for the residents of Milpitas. We have a large, growing population of Indians in Milpitas and it’s befitting that we do something for them — and not just for them, but for all the different cultures,” said Mayor Montano. “We’re a very diverse city, and that is our strength.” Photo by The Milpitas Beat.
