Kaysville July 4th Parade

Almost all family members were together for the Kaysville July 4th Parade. The parade entries do not seem to change much from year to year but we enjoy them just the same. The temperature cooled a little for the parade as clouds moved over Davis County. Here are a few photographs I took of the participants. Click […]

Days of ’47 Float Preview

On Tuesday I went with family to the Days of ‘47 Float Preview Party at the South Towne Expo Center. You could meet the creators and technicians behind the 2010 Days of ‘47 Parade floats and see how it all comes together.

West Bountiful City Independence Day Parade

Last year I went with family to watch the West Bountiful City Independence Parade. The theme was Our Heritage Past and Present. There were 60 entries but it didn’t take very long for the parade to pass by.

Kaysville Independence Day Parade

Yesterday we watched the Kaysville / Fruit Heights Independence Day Parade. The weather was perfect, so cool. There were ominous dark clouds overhead but they didn’t rain on our parade. Just before the parade started four F-16s from Hill Air Force Base flew low overhead to loud applause from the large crowd.

Brigham City Peach Days

Peach days takes place the weekend after Labor day weekend. Much of the main street in the city is closed off to cars, and the festival is celebrated by a parade, a car show, a carnival, and other activities including the famous “Scuba Burger” which many Peach Day goers enjoy.

Bountiful Handcart Days

There were a lot of marching bands in the parade and of course the biggest and best is the Davis High School Band. There were the usual cars and even though some were old there were none that were rickety. The governor and his wife were in the parade as well as Rob Bishop in a car that could barely hold him.

One of the floats won a prize which wasn’t too difficult as there were only two in the whole parade.

West Bountiful Parade

There were the usually bands, fire engines, and rickety old cars. There were even Star Wars characters entertaining the crowd. With fifty entries the parade was over in less than an hour which is about the right amount of time for me.
