Parades and car show highlight Peach Days

If it’s the weekend after Labor Day it’s Peach Days in Brigham City and Monica Holdoway, Executive Director of the Brigham City Area Chamber of Commerce, says close to 60,000 people are expected to attend at least some of the Friday and Saturday activities. Holdoway says Peach Days started in 1904 as a day off from the harvest and time to celebrate an abundance of the best peaches in Utah. She says the most heavily attended event is the Peach Days Parade starting Saturday at 10 am on Brigham City’s Main Street. “It’s a crowd favorite,” Holdoway says.While the parades draw large crowds, another large event is the annual car show. “It’s actually one of the largest car shows in the Western United States because it’s free and we allow attendees to come in for free, as well as people who are participating and registering their cars, there’s no fee for them,” Holdoway explains. “Last year we had 904 cars on display and they’re actually expecting more this year.”Holdoway says among the other highlights are a junior parade Friday at 6 pm, and a concert Saturday at 7:30 pm on the Main Street stage at 40 North Main. John Schmidt is the headliner for the concert.Among the other activities are a 6.2 mile road race, a book sale, a flower show, a motorcycle show, a melodrama, and a Clean Hypnotist show.
