Festival of Colors

Today was the annual Holi festival at the Krishna temple in Spanish Fork. In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. Thousands of people descended on the temple grounds for the throwing of colors.
I had heard about the festival a couple of years ago, but we had never gone before. It's a huge cultural event here in the valley...people of all religions gathering to celebrate the season, and to have some colorful fun. Lane and I decided to go check it out at the last minute today. After seeing the masses of people and the cloud of powdery haze hanging over the grounds, we settled for some drive by photos.
For some great shots taken at a previous celebration, check out this link.
