This month in Utah, we celebrate Pioneer Day on July 24th. Pioneer Day is an important day here in Utah and is a lot of fun! What is Pioneer Day exactly? Well, it’s a state holiday where we celebrate when Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers came into the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. The pioneers are a BIG part of Utah’s history and they stand as amazing examples of strength, dedication, faith, family, and courage.
