Holi - Festival of Colors - March 24-25

Holi – the Festival of Colors – will be held March 24-25 at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork. See the Temple website for complete details. The Temple provided the information below.

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 2011 50,000 revelers flooded the temple and grounds for 2 days 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 2012.

2012 Color throwings will be Saturday, March 24th, every 2 hours from 10 am - 8 pm (1st throwing approx. 11 am) and Sunday March 25th, from Noon - 4 pm (1st throwing approx 1 PM).

This year's entertainers will be Jai Uttal and the Queen of Hearts Orchestra, The Mayapuris, The Kirtaniya Vibrations, Larisa Stow & Shakti Tribe, plus TK and Nam Rock, Jai Krishna & Ananda Groove.
