Nibley’s Heritage Days continue this week, and after dark check out the fireflies

Heritage Days continue through Saturday in Nibley and according to city manager David Zook, you don’t have to live in Nibley City to enjoy the activities. The parade will be held Saturday morning beginning at 10 a.m. at Heritage Elementary. Family festivities will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Elkhorn Park.

“We’re doing something a little different in the evening and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Zook explained. “At our Anhder Park, which is the one by city hall, from 8 to 11 (p.m.) we’re calling it the Party in the Park. We’re going to have a show, we’re going to have music, we’re going to have a D.J.   We’re going to have free ice cream, so if people want to come out and get some ice cream we’ll have food trucks there. And then, of course, fireworks and dancing at the end of the day.”

All the details can be found at Zook was a guest on KVNU’s For the People program on Thursday and said there’s even more incentive to visit Nibley at night for the next week or so: fireflies.

“Go to Heritage Park, park in the parking lot, walk over to the west side of the park, you’ll see a big willow tree,” Zook continued. “Look on both sides of the willow tree, you’ll see them right there in the grasses at 10 o’clock at night.

“They don’t come out until 10 o’clock at night, so it has to be completely dark. You don’t need a flashlight, you’ll see them and the only thing we ask is don’t try to catch them, because we don’t have very many and if everybody catches one they’ll be gone pretty soon.”

He said long-time talks are moving along and gaining a little bit of momentum between Nibley and Logan City about straightening the boundary between the cities, which may affect residents and businesses in the future.
