Girls dance at the Salt Lake Krishna Temple's Holi Festival of Colors celebration on Saturday, April 14, 2012. Holi marks the end of the winter gloom and rejoices in the bloom of the spring time. Songs, dance, drink and food go in excess when it is time for Holi. It can be said, "Life turns Colorful" when it is time for Holi.

SALT LAKE CITY — Clouds of color could be seen over the Salt Lake Krishna Temple at 965 E. 3370 South, on Saturday as people gathered to celebrate Holi, the annual Festival of Colors.

Every two hours, revelers participated in "color throwings" — clouds of brightly colored chalk flying through the air to celebrate the coming of spring.

The Holi Festival is celebrated with lots of color, music and food.
