Image: I"ll let you in on a secret. There is a way for your family to experience the best of southern Utah and northern Arizona and all you have to do is get there. Yup, no need to develop a plan for how to spend your days, others have done that planning for you! Every year, the Amazing Earthfest takes place the third week in May and offers a sample of the rich cultural and natural world surrounding the area of Kanab, Utah. May 13 is the kickoff date for the 6th annual festival.
