Grand Parade


The Pony Express Days Grand Parade is a wonderful tradition for residents and visitors alike. Parade will be held Saturday, June 4, starting at 10 AM. It will begin at Cedar Drive and end at Smith Ranch Rd. 

(Submission of a parade application does not guarantee the applicant a spot in the parade. You will receive approval once applications close in mid-May. Eagle Mountain City is strongly encouraging participation via vehicle or trailer, rather than walking the entire route of the parade. It is always best if the entries are decorated.)




The fireworks display will take place at Cory B. Wride Memorial Park at 10 p.m. on June 4.
