    Food & Drink at Rock Canyon: No bars. Lots of family restaurants but not much.

    Employment at Rock Canyon: Employment is not too bad. Provo is a college town so a lot of jobs are on campus and if you want a higher paying job you will need to travel far to work with corporate.

    Local Businesses at Rock Canyon: There are a lot of local businesses here but because economy is so bad, a lot of shops are closing...

    Overall Experience at Lakewood: I personally would move here again I moved from California when I was 10 years old and if my parents wouldn't have brought me here I probably would not be trying to get into collage and build a better future for my family. I wouldn't be stressing about finding money to go to school. I definitely wouldn't be starting school next month but I prefer my life as it is now. This city is going to be big in a couple of years it has definitely improved a lot everything has gotten better.

    Visiting at Lakewood: The color festival is a way to celebrate spring it goes on the last weekend of March and the first weekend in April. There's food and drinks, music. There's a lot of things that go on during the festival of colors there's also yoga going on durring the festival but the best part of the color fest is when people throw up different powderd colors up into the air and at each other. There is so much color in the air that if your in the center you can't see the sky there's just a huge cloud of color at one point it will all look really dark because all the color mixes together. The only bad thing about the color festival is that if you don't cover your mouth, nose and eyes there is a chance that you will get color in your eyes, nose and mouth and trust me that part is not so fun. Besides that everything is fun your hair will change color no matter what your natural color is mine is brown and it still went different colors. After the color festival usually at night there will be a color fest bonfire and even a color fest dances and parties.
