Looking for something different to do on Memorial Day Weekend? It’s not too early to make plans…
These two Heritage events are great for family fun, with a bit of history thrown in.
Thursday, May 23, 2013 through Saturday, May 25, 2013
The Scandinavian Heritage Festival in Ephraim, Utah, running Thursday through Saturday prior to Memorial Day, is possibly the largest Scandinavian heritage event in the Intermountain West.
The event is held from Friday noon through Saturday at dusk. The festival grounds are on the north side of the Snow College campus and at Pioneer Park, 50 N 100 West. The grounds “will buzz with costumes, dancing, storytelling, entertainment, historical tours, craft and food booths and more.”
Location: Snow College, Pioneer Park in Ephraim

Spring City Heritage Day
Saturday, May 25, 2013
The big event for the Friends of Spring City is Heritage Day!
On this day, and this day only, many residents open their historic homes, which have been carefully restored, to tours for the public. Spring City is the best preserved example of an early Mormon pioneer village. Spring City is on the National Register of Historic Pioneer Towns.
Location: 150 East Center in Spring City
