Sorry…if you’re not a Utahn, yawn and pass on to something else.
The Days Of ’47 festivities to celebrate Utah’s statehood have been running all month–but here’s the highlights for the 24th:
- Free admission to Red Butte Gardens, find more info here.
- Parade route details for the Days of ’47 Parade are here. BTW: if you’re heading down for the parade, settle in at the corner of 200 East and 100 South, where The Todd and I will be annoucing the parade. You’ll also find information about the Rodeo here.
- Native American Festival starts at Liberty Park around noon until the fireworks, most activities are free. Nice way to honor those for whom our state is named, eh? Find more info here.
- The Pioneer Celebration at This Is The Place State Park is Old School–handcart races, crafting, the candy cannon and Kid’s Parade. The event runs 9am to 5pm and you can find more info here.
- And the piece de resistance: the Fireworks! Find your closest locations here.
