Taylorsville City is turning 17 this year! After a 70 percent vote of the people to incorporate and become a city in 1995, Taylorsville has continued its tradition of responsive government to residents of this bedroom community. Taylorsville's population of 60,000 is located in the heart of the Salt Lake Valley.
Taylorsville Dayzz is a tradition looked forward to by many families in the city. Between the carnival, parade, 5K run, Utah Symphony, free concerts, and the best fireworks show in the valley, there is something to appeal to everyone. (FYI... Fireworks are not funded using taxpayer dollars - they are funded by sponsors.)
The Utah Symphony and Wasatch Cannoneers will perform on Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. On Friday you can enjoy "Let's Hang On," a Frankie Valli/Jersey Boys tribute, which follows a performance by the Taylorsville Orchestra at 6:30 p.m. This year, Abbacadabra will be performing an Abba tribute concert on Saturday, June 29 at 8 p.m.
New this year is a Movie in the Park at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday. Families can enjoy, "Despicable Me" with their friends and neighbors. There are also hot air balloon rides each night ($10 for adults, $5 for kids under 12). Nothing beats the view of the 20,000 plus people gathered to hear the concerts and see the fireworks. Bring your lawn chairs, water bottles, and your family!
