Marc Christensen, Tremonton City’s community services director, said the city is excited to host the event without breaking the bank for participants. 

“One of the best things about Tremonton City Days is that most of the activities are free, and it’s in large credit to our sponsors,” he said. “There’s lots of fun things going on.”

Christensen said he’s looking forward to several new activities this year, including a <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/events/694028517457608/?acontext=%7B%22source%22%3A5%2C%22page_id_source%22%3A1123803257644459%2C%22action_history%22%3A%5b%7B%22surface%22%3A%22page%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22main_list%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22%7B%5C%22page_id%5C%22%3A1123803257644459%2C%5C%22tour_id%5C%22%3Anull%7D%22%7D%5d%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D”>petting zoo and pony rides from Freckle Farm</a> and the first annual <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/events/250873785415917/?acontext=%7B%22source%22%3A5%2C%22page_id_source%22%3A1123803257644459%2C%22action_history%22%3A%5b%7B%22surface%22%3A%22page%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22main_list%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22%7B%5C%22page_id%5C%22%3A1123803257644459%2C%5C%22tour_id%5C%22%3Anull%7D%22%7D%5d%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D”>Little Miss Bear River Valley pageant</a>. He said the pageant will provide an opportunity for young girls to have a positive experience onstage in a noncompetitive environment, with the winner of the contest being drawn from a hat.

Christensen said community members can also look forward to a Fiesta Community Dinner on Friday with $1 street tacos and a Mariachi band, breakfast in the park on Saturday and booths and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy throughout the weekend.

“We’ve had a lot of interest in this Battle of the BBQ. It’s kind of a backyard, fun small-town barbecue contest,” he said. “They’ll just start cooking at 7 o’clock in the morning, they’ll cook all day and then at 5 o’clock, we’ll do the judging and announce winners.”

Christensen said prize giveaways and drawings will be part of many of the celebration’s activities, and he’s grateful to the event’s many sponsors. He said Tremonton City is a wonderful place to live.

“It’s large enough that there’s events like this with lots of people,” he said, “but it’s small enough that it’s a great community feel. I feel like almost everybody knows everybody. When you go to Tremonton City Days, you’re going to run into people that you know and you can talk to, and it’s just a great community to be a part of.”

While registration for Wednesday’s pickleball tournament is full, Christensen said event coordinators are still looking for participants in Thursday’s Bear River High School alumni softball game. He said “The Book of Life” will be Friday’s movie in the park, with a <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/events/120019525283027/?acontext=%7B%22source%22%3A5%2C%22page_id_source%22%3A1123803257644459%2C%22action_history%22%3A%5b%7B%22surface%22%3A%22page%22%2C%22mechanism%22%3A%22main_list%22%2C%22extra_data%22%3A%22%7B%5C%22page_id%5C%22%3A1123803257644459%2C%5C%22tour_id%5C%22%3Anull%7D%22%7D%5d%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D”>Fender Benders concert and fireworks show</a> on Saturday. Other activities throughout the event include a candy cannon, Bear River Valley Museum Birthday Party, a Magic Man performance and family bingo.
