Here are a few of our favorite upcoming events...
Best Free Food
Pleasant Grove Strawberry Days (June 15-18)
Free bowls of fresh strawberries and cream at most events.
100% worth the long lines!
Most Free Stuff
This event does have a small entrance fee, but the swag you get just for entering pays you back and more! Full-size makeup items for mom, books, cookies, and more for the kids. There are loads of free activities and a movie throughout the day. Each entrant gets tickets for prize drawings, and, of course, if you've got the cutest kids, there is even more in store!
Best Candy Parade
Payson Onion Days (September 3)
The key here is to grab a piece of ground in the historic downtown stretch of the parade route-unless you're sweating and toting a trumpet down the street, this is the closest you'll get to being "in" the parade. There is never a shortage of candy in this parade and if you're patient you'll hit the jackpot in a raining candy shower sprayed from farm machinery.
There are SOOO many more festivals going on throughout the state...All summer long I'll be posting activities in the "Happening This/Next Week" list on the left of this page. Follow the links on our Festivals and Celebrations page for more information on celebrations near you. And, tell me,
What is your favorite Utah town celebration?
