The Holi Festival of colors on Saturday, March 25 and Sunday, March 26 will be at the Sri Sri Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah.
Over the years, it has become a huge celebration from all faiths all over. Held in India every year in late February or early March, Holi Festival was inspired by an ancient Hindu legend celebrating the triumph of good over evil. The two-day festival also marks the beginning of spring, a season of rebirth and vivid colors. To that end, the revelries erupt in a flurry of bright hues as festival-goers toss colorful powders at one another.
Stateside, the celebration takes its cues from the original fest. Attendees stock up on dry powders provided by the temple, then douse their hair, clothes, and cheeks in vibrant pinks, greens, blues, and violets. Multihued, they can roam the grounds interacting with fellow revelers, dancing to live music, taking yoga classes, participating in uplifting mantras, and sampling Indian cuisine.
Outside colors will be confiscated and not be allowed on the festival grounds. We have five assorted vivid colors (violet, green, yellow, pink, & orange ) in 100g bags at $3 per bag. Most people prefer to purchase four bags of assorted colors pre packed for $10. Ingredients are corn starch, permissible food grade dyes, & fragrance. They are environmentally friendly, beautiful colors, and nicely scented. Least likely to stain people and clothes if maximum amount is shaken out dry before showering or washing.
Please do not throw colors directly in others’ eyes or mouth. There will be dust masks 2/$1, and bandanas for $6.
There will be “Color Throws” every hour, from Noon. Please carefully read the FAQ section in this regard.
