I had a great weekend at both the Wichita River Festival and Exploration Place. I started my Saturday afternoon taking in the CSI exhibit at EP. I wondered if it could possibly appeal to children, tweens, teens and adults. Turns out it can. The creators of the exhibit have spared no expense in creating this marvelous exhibit. I may go again, as I have only solved one of the three cases. One case is solved per visit...unless your group consists of three or more people and decides to split-up. I suppose you could then solve all three cases in a day. I had friends in from Dallas and we loved working as a team. we were assigned case #2 (blue). It was very fun. Late afternoon found me at the Kansas Star Music park and Westbank Stage. The Marshall Tucker Band members could not have been kinder. They really seemed to enjoy the "Meet and Greet" before the show! I loved seeing activity on the river as I stood "backstage'. Seems to me that Wichita Festivals has taken the River Festival in a new direction, making it better than ever! Please share your thoughts with us about both the festival and the EP exhibit.
