24th of July Parade

The 2018 Days of ’47 Parade was a great success this year! We finally had coverage televised by KSL for the first time in many years. As the 3rd entry in the Parade, SUP President-elect Tony Tidwell and his wife Kathy lead out 47 Pioneers pulling handcarts, many transporting children. President Keith Van Roosendaal and his wife Elizabeth followed up behind to watch that all went well, and ensure we didn’t leave anyone behind. The crowd met us with patriotic salutes, cheers, and waving, with particular interest in the children riding in handcarts. The SUP sends a special Thank-You to Wes Adams who brought many pioneers directly from their stake trek, and we open the invitation to all – Come walk with the Sons of Utah Pioneers next year!
