Everything You Need To Know!
1. What to Wear? There are no rules about what to wear, though many find that wearing white allows the colors to really shine. Be sure you wear something that you don’t mind getting a little colorful.
2. Are the Colors Safe? Absolutely! The colors are made of plant-based, non-toxic, all-natural cornstarch. They are safe for the environment, children, and pregnant women. They’re even edible–not that we’d suggest eating them!
3. Who Should Come? Color Festival is for everyone! Men, women, children, families–everyone is welcome at this all-inclusive event that will help you re-connect with what’s most important in life.
This year there will be an additional 600 free parking spaces available right at the South East corner of the Benjamin exit # 253. Shuttles will run from there the extra 3 ,miles ot the temple. Boy Scouts will handle parking and shuttle tickets ($ 2.00 adults, Kids Free)
- We recommend the free parking in the large field (600 spaces) on the South East corner of the Benjamin Exit, # 253. This has been rented by the temple and will be staffed with Boy Scouts who will supervise the parking and $ 2.00 shuttle tickets (adults, kids free)
- The next best means of approach is from further south. Take the Payson exit, turn left, proceed 1 mile east to a traffic light, turn left, and proceed 3 miles to the temple area. There is a large free parking area (300 spaces) on the temple property to the left. To the right many of the neighbors across the street rent out parking spots in their fields for $ 5.00. In this category there are probably about 1,000 spaces.
- The third means of approach, which has traditionally involved the most congestion, is to take the Spanish Fork # 260 exit, proceed south on Main Street to the free parking on the Fairgounds (600 spaces) to the left or, a little further down, the Sports Park (600 spaces) on the right. Here Boy Scouts will manage the parking and shuttle bus tickets which are $ 2.00 for adults and free to children.
- Try to avoid roadside parking as pedestrains tend to spill into the roadways and put themselves at risk from passing vehicles.
There are 300 free parking spaces on the temple property accessed from the radio station entrance on the South Side, by taking the Payson exit and coming north 3 miles. Coming north from Payson you’ll initially see the Salem Hills High School Parking lot on the left, which offers free parking and shuttle service. One mile later the free temple parking access is on the left, and to the right the neighbors across the street have 1,000 parking spaces in their fields, which they’ll be renting for $ 5.00 each. We recommend Ben’s lot with the pink parking sign.
The below parking and busing arrangements are for Saturday only. Sunday we plan on using just the Spanish Fork Sports Park (600 spaces) as a remote parking location and having 4 shuttle buses.
Directions and Parking. Last buses (we’ll have 8 buses running all day Saturday) return to parking lots at 7:15 pm Saturday.
The Utah Highway Patrol deems roadside parking puts pedestrians at risk & asks people use the parking lots and shuttle buses.
Those kind enough to volunteer to help with parking, security, & selling bags of colors, please contact Caru Das. We’ll need at least 75 volunteers. Volunteers who work for 2 shifts of 2 hours will receive a free meal or festival t-shirt. Admission fee is not waived for volunteers.
