North Logan’s one-day Pioneer Day observance Tuesday will feature Rep. Rob Bishop on hand to help recognize the completion of the community’s King Nature Park.
“Fred and Sherry Huchel, who live in North Logan, donated the land,” said Mayor Lloyd Berentzen.
“The intent and purpose was to keep the land more or less in a natural state. The idea is to enjoy some small trails up there. We’ve put in some bench seating to enjoy during walks on the trail. It’s a pretty neat place to go and have a picnic and relax and look over the valley. A lot of people are starting to take advantage of that.”
Rep. Bishop will speak at 2 p.m. at the new nature park at 2300 East and 1900 North.
The day begins with a 6:45 p.m. flag ceremony at Elk Ridge Park a community breakfast will follow, 7-9 a.m.
A short parade starts at 10 a.m. at 1600 East and 1900 North and ends at Mtn. View Park on 2100 north.
“The parade is a tradition that has been going for many, many years. The route is about two and a half blocks long. We’re inviting members of the entire community, not just North Logan, to be a part of that parade.
“Once we arrive at Mtn. View Park there are a whole bunch of activities that happen there with games, different kinds of food and entertainment.”
The Mayor also mentioned historical pioneer displays at the LDS Cultural Hall at 1100 East, 2100 North from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Back at Elk Ridge Park at 6:30 p.m. it is a Charity BBQ dinner prepared by the area Boy Scouts as a fundraiser, music provided by “Mid-Life Project.”
Fireworks, also at Elk Ridge Park, begin at dark.
