Some local communities have had their Pioneer activities already but others are making big plans for the 24th including North Logan. The theme in North Logan City is “Celebrating Heritage Building our Future”. Venues include Elk Ridge Park, Mountain View Park and King Nature Park. On KVNU’s For the People program earlier this month, Parks and Recreation Director Jesse Howe said the day starts with the Free Charity Fun Run and also a hearty breakfast, sponsored by the Friends of the North Logan Library.
The parade will be held at 10 a.m. (north on 1600 East and west on 2100 North). Something new this year is a Dodgeball Tournament from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. That will be held in the new Real Salt Lake building next to the Eccles Ice Arena. And he told us about other events.
“We’re going to do a thing called Bubble Bowling, so we’re going to use a bubble soccer ball and you have to run at the bowling pins and just fly at the them and see if you can knock ’em down. That’s going to be fun, we’ll have tons of foo, lots of vendors there,” said Howe.
The night ends with fireworks at 10 p.m. on the south end of Elk Ridge Park. Looking to the months ahead, North Logan has other recreation programs that might interest families, including Flag Football for even younger kids.
“We have our normal flag football, it usually goes from 1st Grade to 6th grade, but this year we want to do something new. We’re actually going to be offering it to three and four year-olds and kindergarten. Believe it or not, they can play football.
“This learn-to-play type of sport that we’re doing is called ‘Learn to Play Flag’. We have individual stations that the kids rotate through and they get to throw a football, they get to kick a football. Each kid will end up going home with a ball so they can practice at home with their parents.”
