Taylorsville Dayzz!

July 1st marked the 16th anniversary of Taylorsville becoming a city. Taylorsville Dayzz is the city's birthday party and is fast becoming one of the best family-friendly parties in the state! Over 30,000 people attended the events this past weekend.

Thursday night the Utah Symphony and Wasatch Cannoneers performed. All of the concerts are free.

Carnival rides and booths added to the fun of the festivities.

Friday night the Taylorsville Symphony performed, as well as the Surf City Allstars. The audience enjoyed the performance celebrating the 50th year of the Beach Boys.

Saturday morning was the Lions Club Breakfast, 5K Fun Run, Parade, and Auto Show. Don't forget to check out the race results.

We've heard comments that the parade, hosted by the Taylorsville Exchange Club, was the best one yet! Here's a photo of our Taylorsville City float, celebrating veterans and their families.

Saturday night Jay White, sounding remarkably like Neil Diamond, performed many of Neil Diamond's classics. Nothing beats singing, "Sweet Caroline" with thousands of your neighbors and friends!

Four skydivers landed during intermission, the last one displaying the American Flag. It was a great event!

The evening ended with a fireworks show - choreographed to music. Sugarhouse used to have the valley's best fireworks show, but Taylorsville has now become known for the best fireworks show!

A very special thanks to Taylorsville Dayzz Chair Jim Dunnigan and Vice-Chair Steve Ashby for all their hard work! They have a committee that puts together Taylorsville Dayzz and then several hundred volunteers that work to pull off the fun event. THANK YOU to everyone who made this year's Taylorsville Dayzz possible!
