Although there have been many firework-restrictions across the Wasatch Front this season, local communities celebrated Independence Day and plan Pioneer Day celebrations with large firework displays on July 24. The month of July will be full of activities for residents to enjoy from breakfasts in several parks, 5K runs, parades galore, concerts and carnivals and as the sun sets on the last barbecue of the day firework events will fill the night skies.
Festivities include a carnival, live entertainment and demonstrations on the central stage, over 100 vendors selling great food, crafts, gifts and other products and a salmon bake Friday night sponsored by the Kiwanas Club. Tickets for the salmon bake are $10 per person and are available at the Roy City offices, Roy Harmons and Roy Kent's Market. Bounce houses will be available for younger children and there will be a stomp for teenagers from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. on the tennis courts; please contact Mandy Koford at 801-391-6102 for additional information.
