Letter From the Mayor
Welcome to the 96th annual Strawberry Days Festival, the longest continually running community celebration in the State of Utah. With over 50 events, you’re sure to find activities for every interest of your whole clan. This year’s newest addition is the annual Firefighter’s Pancake Breakfast to be held on Saturday, June 11th at the Fire Station. What a great way to start the festivities with a full stomach while supporting those that protect us.
In the classic 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz”, (inspired just 19 years after the 1st Strawberry Days), Dorothy wants to go home really bad. She’s told to close her eyes, click her strawberry colored heels together, and repeat the words three times, “There’s No Place Like Home”. Magically, Dorothy awakes from her strange journey in the familiar surroundings of . . . “Pleasant Grove.”
Come home to PG and see PRCA Rodeo, complete with mutton busting, cash cow chasing and wild bull milking. Relax on a Sunday afternoon with Concerts in the Park. Do a walk/run in the Police Department 5K “Guns & Hoses.” Catch candy at the Parade. Ride the Ferris wheel at the carnival. Eat a rodeo burger combo. And remember to fill up on fresh strawberries and cream!
If your head is far from home and you need a little grounding, click your heels, grab your kids, and head down the yellow brick road to Strawberry Days 2016.
Mayor Mike Daniels
