We have been talking quite a bit about the Rose Exposed here at Salt Lake magazine because frankly it isn't everyday that you get 6 Arts organizations working together to put on an all day festival, in fact this is the first year for this event and we want to help it be a success so we can enjoy it for many years to come. If you missed our first two posts that talk about the entire festival you can find them here and here.
But this is kid friendly so lets focus on all the kid activities going on at the Rose Wagner tomorrow.
