Families and friends can celebrate their pioneer heritage at Provo’s annual Pioneer Day Extravaganza on Saturday, July 23 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at North Park (500 N 500 West). Thanks to our amazing Parks & Recreation Department, we’ve got an awesome event in store for you!

There will be a variety of activities, games, and entertainment for all ages.
Effective immediately, Provo Fire & Rescue has issued an open fire restriction for the foothills on the east bench and all areas of the Provo City watershed including South Fork. These restrictions are implemented due to the high fuel levels in the foothills and the decreasing fuel moisture content. In addition, open firework discharge dates are from July 1 through July 7 and July 21 through July 27. Fireworks may be discharged from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm except July 4th and July 24th when discharge must end by midnight.
