    Even if it was broadcast so you could see it, you may not have seen Pres. Monson. He often is not in the parade as the First Presidency tends to rotate who is riding.

    @David in CA

    I hate to rain on your parade (pun intended) but the Pioneer Day Parade isn't all that "LDS" any more.

    In years past, we, (who live ouside of Utah) WERE able to see the Pioneer Day Parade
    on TV via the BYU-TV channel, which goes all over the world on the cable and/or satellite.

    Last year, and it looks like this year ALSO, BYU-TV is NOT going to give us any opportunity
    to see this year's Pioneer Day Parade.

    Not going to let us see the current Prophet Thomas S. Monson and others in the
    Pioneer Day Parade!!

    What could be more "LDS" than the Pioneer Day Parade??

    In past years the BYU-TV coverage was tape delayed (timewise) like later in the day
    or even on the following weekend. This should have taken care of any
    "diluted Channel 5 KSL-TV" audience concerns.

    I doubt that the Prophet, himself, wants us outside of Utah to miss out on this, BUT it Does Appear that some Broadcasters, who operate in Utah, don't give a darn about those who live outside of Utah's boundaries.

    How can we learn How to Share better and Be more Generous??
