Color Run 2014 7

There is a stage at the end of the Color Run where the participants gather. The organizers throw little packets of colored powder to the crowd. After a countdown, the runners toss them into the air. This is the result.

The crowd at this event was tiny compared to the past. Look at the number of people in the second picture - these were the participants at the end - and compare the mob there in 2012. The organizers ran one of these here in April. Maybe too often. Maybe a fad that is past its time.

Once every year should be enough.

Looks like a tidier version of Holi Festival I was in India twice for this, but kept aside since I didn't want my Nikon multicolored....inside or out.

I've always wanted to get to one of these. Will do sometime. It's a place for COLOR that's for sure.

Glad you had another nice visit to the south of France, and a safe return back to the routine of diverse events in Saint Louis.

Once a year is absolutely enough :)

Very colourful! No, it hasn't been done here.

I've never attended any of these events, but I'm glad you did and took such a great shot as the one on top.
