Lund Pioneer Days
July 24-26, 2017
In the State of Utah and in various cities throughout the U.S., including Lund, July 24 is an official holiday on which government offices and many businesses shut their doors to celebrate Pioneer Day.
Pioneer Day commemorates when Brigham Young and his followers reached the Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847. According to Wikipedia, Pioneer Day celebrates all pioneers, defined as those who arrived before the transcontinental railroad chugged into the area in 1869.
The little town of Lund was settled by Mormons, and they celebrate their heritage with a two-night rodeo, dance, parade, barbeque, fireworks, and more.
