Color Powder for Holi

The color powder for holi is used for throwing at the color run as well. You have probably noticed that the new fad is to do one of these themed races, well I should call them 5k’s and not races because nobody is really trying to finish first. Actually the opposite is most likely they case because you want to enjoy the event for as long as possible. The idea behind these types of events is that you wear white clothes that you don’t care much about because they will probably end up stained with color. Then you all get a few bags of color and run a 5k (they are rarely actually a full 5k in length) and at certain designated spots throughout the race everyone throws their colored powder (which is food grade cornstarch with color added to it) up in the air it makes a cool looking array of dust to run through.
