Pioneer Day is celebrated July 24th throughout the state of Utah. Originally it was a day to commemorate Brigham Young and the first group of pioneers entering the Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847. Today, it is a day to recognize everyone who emigrated to the Salt Lake Valley during the Pioneer Era. Perhaps the biggest celebration in the state is Salt Lake City's Days of 47 Celebration.
The Pioneer Day activities are organized by local LDS churches. The day begins with a parade and concludes with activities at the Community Center. Of course fireworks may be heard throughout the day as well!
