As opposed to family unfriendly celebrations?

Park City, UT

I suppose the family friendly thing is why we do not acknowledge Pioneer Day in Park City.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

What a bunch of paranoid whiners. Family friendly denotes the fact that the celebrations include 'stuff' that kids may enjoy......more than simply face painting. Activities focused on kids.


Park City, UT

Lighten up. It was a feeble attempt at a somewhat self-deprecating joke.

Family friendly activities? in Utah? For Pioneer day?

Good thing I'm not a Vegas Odds maker; I'd struggle w/ this one.
