Holi Fest - 2012

So I've been to the Holi Fest in Spanish Fork before and this year I thought I would probably skip it since I have gone in 2010 and 2011. But it turned out that I have friends who had not been yet so I went back for another dose of colored corn starch. It's something you should experience once and as long as I have friends who haven't experienced it, I will probably continue to go back. If nothing else it makes for some fun photos.

Holi Fest Tips

  • Only wear clothes that you are willing to throw away. Sometimes the color will come out and sometimes it will not.
  • A bandanna and sun glasses can help protect yourself. Contacts are a bad idea.
  • Bring a change of clothes for wearing to keep your car clean.
  • Be prepared to be hit with colors long before you make it to the temple. If you are bringing a camera make sure its protected.
  • Bring garbage sacks to put your colored clothes in or to protect your car seats.
  • Bring a camera. This is an event that deserves photos. Even if you leave the camera in the car while you are at the festival.
  • Save some of your colors to apply right before the photos. Otherwise you might just look purplish gray in all the photos.
