By Heather Madsen,
This year is cruising by! We’re already more than halfway through March, and spring is literally days away. The weather is slowly warming up, and the snow is turning to rain, but the flowers and trees aren’t quite in bloom yet. If you’re anything like me, you can’t wait for the color to come back into the landscape with new growth and life. Lucky for us, we can bring bright splashes of color into our lives while we wait on nature to catch up, and what better way to do that than by attending the Festival of Colors?
That’s right, it’s that time of year again when Krishna Colors throws a color festival to celebrate the Indian holiday of Holi, and to welcome in spring! As usual, the festival will be held at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork on March 25th and 26th. This is a family-friendly event and everyone is invited to enjoy the live music, chanting, food, yoga, dancing, and color throws.
If you’ve never been to one of the color festivals, you’re in for a treat! Holi is traditionally celebrated by painting yourself and others with mesmerizing colors. Krishna Colors sells pigmented powders at the festival which you throw in the air, rub in your hair, or toss on your clothes. There’s a color throw every hour of the festival with a countdown, and by the time you leave you’ll be a walking rainbow! (We recommend wearing clothes you’re ok with getting stained).
Whether you’re a first-time festival goer, or a festival veteran, the Festival of Colors is definitely worth attending. What better way is there to spend a day or a weekend than by bonding with your community and making the world a more bright and colorful place?
