SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (GOOD 4 Utah)- The Pioneer Day of 68 years ago was the centennial of the pioneers arriving in the Salt Lake Valley. The state went all out and filmed the celebrations from one end of Utah to the other. Last week we showed you special events. This week we crank out film of dozens of parades throughout the state. They all took place July 24th 1947.
This weekend marked the start of the Utah parade season. Between July 4th and the 24th just about every school band, community, county, club and religious institution will march horses, floats and people up and down Utah streets.
Baby boomers, there is not doubt you took out a high school date in your Chevy and had a malt and a burger at your favorite drive-in.
