Cedar Fort ready to celebrate July 24th
CEDAR FORT -- Cedar Fort residents look forward to their annual July 24 celebration with its traditional rodeo, parade, carnival and town-wide water fight. Families and former residents gather each year for a down-home small town celebration with a pioneer flare. This year's festivities will include several new twists on well-loved events, and introduce some new activities as well.
The town clean-up on July 19 will feature a Service Scavenger Hunt. According to Cedar Fort activities chairwoman Harmony Withers, participants will have a chance to compete for prizes, do service and learn more about their community as they clean up around town.
Parents will have an opportunity to show off their cute youngsters in the new Little Miss and Mister Cedar Fort Pageant for pre-schoolers aged five and under on July 21. Contestants must be residents of Cedar Fort, White Hills or Fairfield. The winners will ride on a float in the July 24 Parade.
The theme for the 2018 Cedar Fort July 24 parade is "Be the change you want to see in the world." Dennis and Carole Malmstrom will serve as grand marshals in the parade, and ride around the rodeo arena later that day to kick-off the rodeo. The carnival in the park following the parade will include games and activities for children and also a new street fair full of a variety of vendors to appeal to all ages.
Food concessions will be available for purchase at the Community Softball Game, Carnival, Rodeo, and of course the Fireman's Breakfast. Proceeds from the Fireman's Breakfast will help the Cedar Fort/Fairfield Fire Department purchase up-dated gear.
