Color Festival

Welcome to Red Couch Recipes!

Over my children's spring break we attended a Color Festival.  It was a celebration of spring held at the Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, Utah.

It is estimated that over 50,000 people attended the day we went.

The whole point is to get colored chalk all over you.  Sunglasses helped protect your from the chalk dust.

My son delighted in blowing and throwing chalk at people.  If you are at a chalk festival then you are fair game for anything.

Every two hours they hold a big throw where they count down to 10 and everyone throws the chalk.

Their hands covered in green chalk.

Their shoes and pants covered in chalk.

It was, for the most part, a family friendly crowd, and believe it or not most of the chalk easily came off.  My daughter Talley still has a bit of yellow hair from yellow chalk.

I also want to say congratulations to Chase, Jacqueline's son, who just received an LDS mission call to Seoul, Korea where he will be serving for 2 years.  My son Skyler's mission call should be arriving soon also.
