State of Utah Pioneer Day Celebration ~ July 24th!Celebrate and participate!

Pioneer Day aka Deliverance Day marks the entry of the first Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley from back east on the 24th of July, 1847. This is a holiday that has strong ties to the LDS faith but is open to everyone to celebrate! Because it is a state holiday, banks and post offices are open on this day.

Local areas offer pioneer activities, rodeos, parades and fireworks displays to celebrate this state of Utah holiday. For more information on Pioneer Day and its history, go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pioneer_Day_(Utah)

Rita, There are parades, weekend rodeos and fireworks to honor part of Utah's LDS heritage.

Rich, I am meeting people at my office today and also handing over keys to new homeowners today...no holiday for me but the office is a little quiet today.

I was thinking of you yesterday. I was watching Wheel of Fortune and there was a couple on there from St. George, UT! They were a bit old.....they might have been original pioneers!

Not unique to Utah, that is for sure. We are having one here in Oregon as well at the end of the Oregon Trail. I feel honored to know the car leading off the parade this year. It is my brother and his 1916 Model T that he and the mayor will be in.

Ha-ha! I can count on you to make me laugh, thanks for that Craig!

Lou, There will something for everyone to enjoy, including a pancake breakfast, parade and arts and crafts opportunties throughout the day and fireworks of course.

Dale, The rodeo is an exciting time and great FUN for people of all ages!

Al & Peggy, I'll be working so have to pass the FUN along to someone else!

Enjoy yourself Todd and take pictures of your brother and his Model T, that is quite an honor.
