For those who live outside of the Beehive State, the 24th of July is officially called Pioneer Day … which celebrates the entry of Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847.  Pioneer Day is generally a day of parades, fireworks, rodeos, and other festivities in most of Utah and in parts of neighboring states with strong LDS populations, which help commemorate the event. Be aware this is a state holiday so most government offices and many businesses are closed.  Although the holiday has strong links to the LDS Church, it is officially a celebration for everyone, regardless of faith and nationality, who are or consider themselves to be pioneers.
