Every now and again something spectacular happens.
Many people miss these fleeting and enchanting moments, but none of them was at the Ostrich Range on Saturday.
It was impossible not to be captivated by the colour explosions.
And underneath the blue and orange and green and pink there were care-free humans!
More than 6 000 adults, teenagers and toddlers made their way to the venue near Melkbosstrand to party and paint their hearts out in the FedGroup Colour me Crazy 5 km Run and Colour Fest.
Their immaculate white attire temporarily glowed in the warm sunlight and then tons of powder paint blotted out the sun.
Soon people gathered at the starting line in anticipation for the “paint stops” along the way. Once there the staff declared war on the masses and bombarded them with enough paint to thoroughly depress the prolific Picasso.
Just a few paint stops later and even mothers would not be able to recognise their own children.
Then the music festival began and people bathed in hypnotic tunes until late.
Once home, they bathed again.
And again.
And finally, the only thought that lingered longer than the paint on one’s pants was how cool it would be if every day was a festival of colours.
