Pioneer Day Celebration

This 24th of July celebration commemorates the Mormon pioneers entering the Salt Lake Valley with Brigham Young in their quest to live according to their faith. I appreciate their historic efforts as well as the efforts of those who gave their time and talents to plan and carry out our local festivities.

Our family plus a friend dressed the part and enjoyed such activities as sack races, graces, apple bobbing, listening to guitar and fiddle music, and eating.
