One reveller, Mashia Koloi said she enjoyed the event.

“This is an amazing experience; first of its kind in this country,” she mused. “I really enjoyed it especially my kids who enjoyed throwing paint at each other and for once without me shouting at them.” One of the event organisers, Bright Gumbochuma described the event as successful. “The turn-up was amazing; people came in large numbers than we expected and we ended up running out of mechandise.”
