23Friday — Zion Fridays@50 West 

Returning this week at Zion Fridays are hit DJ Italia of U92 and Zion resident and legendary DJ Justin Hollister. Zion Bar offers a unique spin on nightlife tailored to those who like the more elegant things in life, while not losing sight of the deviant pleasures that keep us young and vibrant. Bespoke cocktails, craft beers, chiseled physiques, and the latest in hit music by locally renowned DJs are a few of the sought-after things you’ll come to both expect and appreciate.

— Holi Festival of Colors

In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets in a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. Every nook and cranny (of the body) presents a colorful sight. Young and old alike covered in colors. The weekend embraces interactive dance, Yoga, Mantra bands, Hip Hop, Rap, Soul, Kirtan, cuisine, crafts, and free hugs. It’s the world’s happiest transformational event!
Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple, 311 W. 8500 South, Spanish Fork, times vary through Sunday. Tickets $6 at festival entrance, festivalofcolorsusa.com
