Holi Festival of Colors This Weekend In Spanish Fork
The annual Holi Festival of Colors at the Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork has become a bid deal, attracting visitors from around the Intermountain Region and beyond. Hordes of people will descend on the Temple, and that is part of the fun.
Traffic will be congested on Main Street on the south side of Spanish Fork, which is located just south of Provo. There will not be any parking spaces anywhere close to the Temple.
The festival hours are 10 am – 8 pm on March 30 and 11 am – 4 pm on March 31.
Shuttle buses will run from parking areas at the Spanish Fork Fairgrounds, Sports Complex and Salem Hills High School to the Temple. People are encouraged to ride the shuttle.
Attendance has grown every year. College students from around the region have put the festival on their circuit and many will show up. It is a great opportunity for members of the public to have fun, learn about Krishna, enjoy ethnic food and culture, and throw colors at each other.

A similar festival will be held April 20 in Salt Lake City. The UtahKrishnas.org website has more details.
