Utah Valley Festivals Bring Color To Spring

Two fun festivals will be held in Utah Valley/Provo area during the next few weeks. Learn more about Utah Valley festivals here.

Holi Festival
The annual Holi Festival will be held March 27 at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah. There will be two celebrations, one at 12 Noon and one at 4 pm. Highway 89 south from Spanish Fork will be congested at those times, and all parking spaces will fill up. Go early if you want to attend.

The Temple provided the info below about the festival. Read more here.

Holi is the Festival of Colors, a traditional Indian holiday celebrated in our own innovative fashion. By far our biggest festival of the year, during Holi 2009 thousands of revelers flooded the temple and grounds for a day of brightly colored powder, mantra, music and a bit of "holi" mayhem.

This year, realizing that Holi has developed a national following especially among college festival-goers, we are preparing more parking and more colors (by far) than ever before. The music, the dance, the worship, the facilities -- everything is being upgraded for Holi 2010.

Thanksgiving Points Tulip Festival
The 6th annual Thanksgiving Point's Tulip Festival will be held April 16-May 1, at Thanksgiving Point in northern Utah Valley. Thanksgiving Point provided the info below. Learn more here.

Featuring 250,000 tulips spread throughout the 55-acre Thanksgiving Point Gardens, the Tulip Festival is an awe-inspiring sight that is redesigned each year to create a new display. In addition to the spectacular tulips, on Fridays and Saturdays the Tulip Festival includes music, vendors, food, and even storytelling for children. Garden tours and demonstrations run every day.

Also, stop by the art exhibit featuring Sarah Samuelson’s locally famous paintings, inspired by her love of tulips and the Thanksgiving Point Gardens. And though there are hundreds of volunteers and staff working behind the scenes to create the festival, make no mistake about it: Mother Nature is in charge of the show. Regular Garden admission fees apply, free admission for Thanksgiving Point members and Thanksgiving Point Gardens members.
