• Mountain West Reef Fest

    Saturday, November 2, 2013 - Salt Lake City, Utah

    The Mountain West Reef Fest is a family friendly full day of fun and education. If you've never attended, you're missing out. I went a couple of years ago and had a great time. Not only are the speakers providing knowledgeable answers to questions posed, not only are the vendors' booths filled with live coral and wares you need, you'll get to enjoy a workshop or two.

    I don't know why other than the location, but this is the only reef event that feels the most kid-friendly out of them all. When I attended, a giant pirate ship as out front for the kids to explore with a pirate captain creating havoc all day long.

    The speakers listed on the official website include Kevin Kohen (2013 MASNA Award winner), Adam Blundell (who no longer can throw his weight around now that he's dropped some serious pounds), Scott Michael (author), and Mike Savage (photo nut). The workshops will be hosted by Mark Petersen, Bacot Dinchak, and Reef Oasis.

    Pricing is very fair for this event, and meals are affordable too. Check out the official website for up to the minute details. Less than two weeks... it's gonna be a blast.

    The Red Lion Hotel is located at 161 West 600 South, Salt Lake City, UT 84101.
