In India Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. It is a festival that breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and corner presents a typically colorful sight. Young and old alike are covered with colors (red, green, yellow, blue, black and silver). People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other. Colors are thrown every 2 hours.
There will be musical interludes, the lighting of a bonfire, burning of an effigy, and the throwing of dry colors on friends and foe alike. The dry powders supplied by the temple are non stain, but still guests are cautioned not to wear their "Saturday Best."
Take Spanish Fork exit 257 and look for parking signs. Shuttles buses will run from parking areas at Spanish Fork Fair Grounds, SF Sport Complex, and Salem Hills High School. There is a $2 fee to ride the shuttle.
