Southern Utah’s Festival of Colors
A really fun celebration is taking place in Cedar City at the end of the month. You might be familiar with the Festival of Colors celebration in Spanish Fork at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple. Now, Southern Utah has its own Festival of Colors celebration. So now, you might be wondering what the festival of colors is. Well, let me tell you about it.
Holi or the Festival of Colors is a Hindu festival that celebrates spring and the eternal and divine love of the gods Radha and Krishna according to Britannica.com. The night or the early morning before the celebration we would probably recognize with all the colors flying in the air, an effigy of the demoness Holika is burned to symbolize overcoming evil and to bring about good spirits. I’ll link a video below of one of the travel YouTubers I follow, Jason Billam, who documented his experience of Holi in India.
The Festival of Colors in Cedar City will have two DJs playing music as well as inflatable rides, vendors, and food. It takes place on April 29th at Three Peaks Oasis. You can find out more information and get tickets at the link here and hopefully, I’ll see you there.
