If you’re looking for an unusually fun Saturday with the family, here’s an idea: check out the Colors Fest in Spanish Fork.

Each year the Krishna temple in Spanish Fork hosts an amazing festival to celebrate Holi, the Festival of Colors. This traditional Indian holiday is celebrated with live music, delectable Indian dishes, and of course, colors. Participants throw little bags of colored chalk in the air every two hours, ensuring that all attendees come home looking like a rainbow. Although the dust is harmless, I recommend wearing a bandana or mask to keep it out of your airways.

This two-day festival is a huge hit with both college students and families. In 2011 more than 50,000 party-ers attended. This year, to alleviate some of the traffic strain, buses will be shuttling the crowd from the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds, Spanish Fork Sports complex, and Salem Hills High School.

Colors Fest 2012 will be Saturday, March 24 from 10 am-8pm and Sunday, March 25 from 12- 4 pm. Admission is $2 for adults, children are free. Color bags can be purchased before the event so save time, or you can buy them that day.
