This is a fun and busy time of year for our family. We love celebrating the 4th of July with parades, BBQs, and of course fireworks. But it doesn’t stop here. We also celebrate the 24th of July. This is Utah’s big celebration, the day the pioneers came into the Salt Lake Valley back in 1847.
We live in a valley with lots of small towns so we each take a holiday for our town to celebrate. The 24th of July is celebrated in Spring City and Fairview. Since the 24th is on Sunday Fairview choose to celebrate this week and Spring City will on Mon. the 25th. We get to go to both this year!
Fairview has this week starting Thurs a Kids Rodeo, Fri the Main Rodeo, and Sat is the Demolition Derby. We have a booth at all of these so you can enjoy some fudge while enjoying the evening.
On Mon. our family will be busy spending the day together starting with the Fireman’s Breakfast at the fire station. I love that they fix breakfast for the family since most will be here this year.
Then the parade down Main Street. Our parade has been nicknamed ‘The Candy Parade’ since everyone throws candy. We are super excited as we are going to have a float in the parade. Watch for us as the grandkids get to throw candy this year.
After the parade is games in the park for everyone. Then we spend the rest of the day as a family at home. Water games, 4 wheeler rides, hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire.
Check out Facebook for pictures as we make our float, we are so excited!
