Festival of Color

Kristin and I just got back from the Festival of Color in Spanish Fork. It was a celebration at the Krishna Temple, where people gather and throw color at one another. I’m guessing there were about 8,000 people there, all sober, ready to party. Color was being sold in $1 bags and $2 bags, with the $2 bags coming from India. Everything was fine and dandy until 6pm came around. That’s when the official celebration beings and people start throwing color. At the very beginning it was chaos, with people throwing their color all over the place. It was hard to see and breathe. At the end of it all, we all were pretty colorful. I’m still trying to clean out all of the color. It gets everywhere.

We just couldn’t figure out what the color was made from. It is either chalk or flour. Either way, it was fun.
