Our grandson Thomas aka The Flash participated with his mother Erika in a 5K race today that included elements of the Festival of Color. Runners became moving rainbows as they were softly pelted with various powdered colors (with prior permission from those being powdered.) Thankfully they seemed to be appropriately extra careful with colorizing young children. Thomas had a fun times you can probably tell from this shot at the end of the race.
