Holi Festival welcomes the spring

Caru Das, right, president of the Hari Krishna Temple in Spanish Fork, joins other followers and their guests as they dance, sing and throw colored chalk as part of the "Holi Festival" Sunday. The colored chalk represents the many colors springtime brings. The festivities included storytelling, musical interludes, a bonfire and a vegetarian feast. In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter.
