The parade brings back great memories of my childhood sitting on the corner of
900 S. State as the parade floats turned to go up to Liberty Park. My dad took
us kids every year, and no matter how hot it was, we always had fun.
The days of 47 parade is ranked in the top 10 parades in the United States. By
Top rated parades on the internet.
As someone who coordinated the logistics for the Utah Pride Parade for several
years, I have to disagree with you (Utter Nonsense 8.54am). Yes the Pride Parade
has a lot of diverse entries but a Beer truck with a banner doesn't exactly have
the production value of a Days of 47 float. Just appreciate the hard
work and volunteerism that goes into their parade and let the LDS folks have
their day in peace.[Although I do have a pet peeve with the City.
The Pride Parade route gets shorter every year and the SLCPD threatens to pull
any group out of the Pride Parade that is over three car lengths from the next
entry. Meanwhile you could land the Space Shuttle between some of the Days of 47
entries...just an observation]
