Festival of Colors

Today Kelsey, Becky, and I went to this Festival of Colors down in Spanish Fork. It is a Hindu thing to celebrate spring (I believe). At first I wasn't sure what was going on then Kels showed me some pictures before we left this morning and it looked so cool. So we ventured down to Spanish Fork. As we were arriving at the temple there we got really excited. We went and bought our chalk and started throwing it all over us and others, as well as others throwing it on us. I was nailed right in the ear to start off by some random person. Then they went and got Becky in the face. When the actual celebration started it was really cool. The arrangement of colorful chalk went flying in the air. The color was so vibrant and you couldn't breathe when you in the middle of it all. We found out the hard way. But needless to say it was a blast. We are already planning on going next year but going way more prepared with face masks!
