Hyrum’s Star Spangled Celebration is underway with events both this week and next. City Councilwoman Stephanie Miller, who oversees special events in Hyrum, said the Sunday evening (July 1) program in the city square is the one most anticipated by the community.
“For most people the patriotic program is the highlight of our entire celebration,” she said. “Scott Wyatt (former Cache County Attorney, now President of Snow College) will be our featured speaker. The American Legion will recognize those from Hyrum who have died in service to our country in addition to honoring those who have served or are now serving in the armed forces.”
Miller said the Imperial Glee Club would also sing during the Sunday event. In addition, the Grand Marshal for the July 4 parade will be introduced plus the announcement of this year’s distinguished Hyrum citizen.
Michael Ballam will sing the national anthem.
Wednesday morning (July 4) in Hyrum begins with the 15K Blacksmith Fork Freedom Run at 7:00, the Lions Club Chuck wagon Breakfast is 7-10:00 in the city square.
“Our parade starts at noon Wednesday on Main Street and afterwards there will be free watermelon on the city square and the Mayor and City Council will be cutting and serving that. We will have booths on the square and different entertainment; we have Magician Richard Hatch performing this year and we will have demonstrations by some jump ropers.”
Entertainment at the soccer fields begins at 8 p.m. in advance of the fireworks show at 10 p.m. with music and narration provided by the radio stations of the Cache Valley Media Group. Then a youth dance will end the evening at Elite Hall.
