Welcome to the Holi Festival! The Holi festival, also known as the throwing of the colors, is tradition for the Indian culture and a Hinduism event. Its the celebration of spring and the renewal of earth and her beauty. To celebrate masses of people get together to dance, sing, and throw paint chalk on each other. There just so happens to be a hinduism temple in Spanish Fork Utah. Ben, me, are niece Mara, and her friend Zach drove down to catch a bus that took us to the trail that we walked on up to the Temple.
On the dirt road up to the temple. Thousands of people where already there and covered by mid-day saturday
Here was were you went to pick up the paint packets. We bought yellow, orange, green, red, pink, and purple while listing to one of the bands.
Eventually we had to shed our colors, thank goodness for wet-ones!
