Time for the Color Festival!

Did you know that the largest Holi Festival in the Western Hemisphere is held right here in Utah? Well it is, and it is coming up. Get out your calendars - it seems like if the largest of anything is right down the street from you you should check it out, right? 

The festival celebrates Holi, the beginning of spring and the end of winter. After this extra cold winter an extravagant celebration of spring seems like a great idea. (I knew spring was really upon us when our igloo finally melted - just this last week!) 

Every time I see this video of the color throwing I smile: 

You can read all the details about how to enjoy the festival here. Remember to bring a towel - my son came home looking like this last year. Enjoy and happy spring!
