Pioneer Day Fireworks

So for those of you outside of Utah, Pioneer day is celebrated on the 24th of July and is a day that celebrates when the Mormon Pioneers first entered the Salt Lake Valley to settle after being forced out of Nauvoo. Well, my favorite part about Pioneer Day is that there are fireworks. Probably just as many fireworks as on the 4th of July. Ben and I were sitting around Saturday evening realizing we missed a lot of the festivities and fun. So we decided to look up where in Utah there were going to be firework shows. We were excited when we found out that Heber puts on a fireworks show by Deer Creek Reservoir. We decided to drive up and park on a pull out overlooking the lake and watch the fireworks. Ben took these awesome pictures of the amazing show put on. Hope you all enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed the fireworks!!

This first one is probably my favorite

So as we were sitting out waiting for it to get dark we noticed all these boats on the lake floating over to where they could watch the fireworks. Smart idea huh? Well, my favorite part is that as soon as the fireworks show was over we saw all these lights (boats) race to the dock to get there before all the other boats so they wouldn't have to wait to load up their boats. It was pretty entertaining.
