A lot of people are expected to gather at Logan’s Willow Park on Thursday for the city’s annual Pioneer Day celebration. Deb Harvey of the Logan Parks and Recreation Department said there are several new events along with familiar favorites.
Harvey said the celebration starts early, at 7 a.m., with a Family Fun Run.
“It’s a one mile and a three mile,” Harvey said on <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/328/2014_07_21_328_24301_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s Crosstalk program</a>. We also have a variety of sporting events. We have volleyball, we have basketball, we have horse shoes. We have soccer, we have a home run derby.
“Come participate, come get active.”
Harvey said the Pioneer Parade starts at 12 noon at Center Street and 100 West. It moves west on Center to 500 West and then on to Willow Park.
Among the other popular events are the second annual car show, Richard Hatch and his Magic Show, family fun Bingo, great music entertainment and fireworks at dark.
“We have entertainment starting at 7,” Harvey continued. “Wasatch Back is going to join us. They are a local group and always fun.
“We are really excited to have back to the Pioneer Day Celebration Ryan Shupe and the Rubber Band. They are a home-grown, Utah group and people love their music, their Corn Dog song. They sing lots and lots of fun songs.”
Some of the new features this year include a Family Fun Zumba and a Munch Madness table. A complete schedule of events in Logan can be found on the <a href=”http://www.loganutah.org/PR/Dept/images/Pioneer_Day/2014PioneerDayCelebrationScheduleofEvents.pdf” target=”_blank”>Logan City website</a>.
