On July 24th, a cast of over 100 youth depict, with dance and music, the journey of the Utah Pioneers.
Witness for yourself the epic struggles and celebrations of the pioneer trek West, and their attempt to settle the untamed valleys of southern Utah.
Sitting under the canopy of stars you will witness wagons, hand- carts, music, special guests, and one of the largest firework display in the valley. This production, held at the Trailblazer Stadium with the vast mountains as the backdrop, will display the beauty of the valley much as it was seen by the settlers as they first entered the valley.
For the first time the story of the original settlers is told, conveying the history of Utah’s settlers, such as Catholic missionary colonizers; Greek, Italian and Polynesian pioneers; the Chinese, Jewish, and Mormon settlers; as well as the Native Americans. You will see the hard work, attacks, death and sorrow, however it will be overcome by the comradeship, celebrations, Indian dances, and fireworks throughout the show.
