For those of you who aren't aware or have never been to the Hare Krishna Temple here in Utah, you should definetley go at least once! It's a neat experience, and a fascination I have had for the last three-four years. To be somewhere and learn of a different culture is like feeling you are out of Utah for the night. Festival of Colors just happens to be one of the events my husband and I attended last Saturday.
We weren't able to make it to the good stuff (costumed dancers, burning of the god, throwing of colors), however we made it to the concert where there was some more throwing of colors and other crazy things students tend to do. I wouldn't recommend going later unless you are a student, or enjoy concerts where it is mostly students. I would recommend going early to see the things I mentioned, or to other festivals, like the Llama Festival, Festival of Lights, or India Festival.
By the way I love Indian food as long as it's not spicy, chicken korma is my favorite. For more information about the Hare Krishna Events please visit their site here.
