Color Run

I have the DA* 55mm lens + the K-7.
They both went through the rains of Venice Italy without any complications. We're talking direct exposure to the steady rain for about 6-8 hours + 98% humidity exposure for the next 17 hours.

The exchange students have all been invited to Munich's color run, and I really want to do it. Plus I have a weatherproof bag I can put my cam in during the color clouds. So the risk of dust inhalation into the lens is smaller.

Has my camera served me well? Yes indeed!

Do I want it to die? Not really...

What are your thoughts regarding protection/best practices for it?

As a note from another color runner: The color is hard to get of your body (human body).
I brought my Pentax X-5 to a run this morning it had little protection, but it was fine.
