A friend invited me to go to the Festival of Colors with her. I had never heard of it but I guess its some sort of celebration of Spring from India. Basically you become a giant walking tie-dye mess! There are count downs to throw colored chalk/powder type stuff in the air and in between the countdowns you throw it at each other. The more I talked to people and told them where I was going the more I realized I must be lame or something because a ton of my friends had gone before or were going this year too! Anyway all you Utah people should go at least once because it is quite the experience. If you have kids it's totally kid safe and they will love it! I was surprised how many kids were there actually (granted we went early Saturday morning..so maybe it gets crazier in the evening..). Anyway here are our awesome colorful pictures from the day and then a video from last years event!
We all started out so clean in our white t-shirts!
