It's a super-packed weekend for the kids, and luckily all our picks are things you'll enjoy, too. Broadway Across America is in Utah for the Lion King (check back for the review), and it's worth the trip to South Jordan for International Days on SoDa Row and The District.

FRIDAY

The World in South Jordan

South Jordan's International Days started on Tuesday night, but it looks like Friday is the right time to take Bangerter all the way down to The District or Daybreak's SoDa Row for Folklore Fun.

Rock-umentary

SLC Film Center shows Strange Powers: Stephin Merrit and the Magnetic Fields Friday night in Pioneer Park. It's part of the Film Center's collab with Salt Lake City Corp. and Downtown Alliance... and each time they show a movie, it's paired with a concert from a local band at 8 p.m. Free of charge.

ALL WEEKEND

Simba!

Our A&E Editor will see The Lion King tonight, so you can either see it with her or wait for the review and then see it. Either way, the Tony-award winner is making a huge buzz for the Capitol Theatre (shows Aug. 11-Sept. 26).
