SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Utah National Guard will host its 60th annual Governor’s Day Saturday, Sept. 14, at 10 a.m. at Westlake High School in Saratoga Springs.
Traditionally, Governor’s Day is held at Camp Williams, but with significant construction projects taking place there, the event was relocated to Westlake.
The Sept. 14 event will allow Gov. Gary Herbert, commander in chief of the Utah National Guard, to review his troops in a pass-and-review ceremony as required by statute and to meet individual airmen and soldiers in person.
Events will also feature a 19-volley cannon salute to the governor about 10:40 a.m., with a test volley at 8 a.m. that morning, and music provided by the 23rd Army Band.
With the planned cannon volleys, homes, ranches, and farms in the radius surrounding the school in Saratoga Springs will hear significant noise for approximately one minute. Home and business owners in the area should take any necessary precautions to minimize impact to pets and livestock.
Other activities include equipment displays, a climbing wall and a food court, all of which will be available until 3 p.m.
