Festival of Colors

Every year at the end of March, the Hare Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork have a "Holli Festival", which we all call "The Festival of Colors". I guess they believe that there was a witch lady that used to kill children, so every year they burn a witch (we are standing in front of in the picture top right) and while the witch burns, people dance around it while throwing colored flour at each other. It is a lot of fun. There are hundreds of people there and it gets real dirty. This was my second year going and I brought Jordan and Trever with me (friends from work) and I brought my cousin Lauren with me. It is quite the experience as you can see from the pictures. Its funny cause most of the people there don't believe in their religion, they just go cause it's fun to get covered with color. :o)

What a fun festival! It looks like you guys had a great time and did your part with the flour. It was good to get your new blog address. It's been years since I've heard from you or we've caught up. Your family looks great. I can't believe all the marriages and kids! I know they tried to get Dinkey Creek up and running this year, but there just wasn't enough interest. I hope we're able to go again soon. Take care! Nicole Bailey (Kreipl)

Wow, Tracy I guess that Lolly and I inspired a good thing! And no surprise, but you even make flour look good! Sounds fun. I'm gonna try to remember to go next year.
