This month we celebrate the pioneers that came to the Great Salt Lake Valley and founded the great state of Utah that we enjoy today. Below is a list of fun pioneer games and music to play at your own Pioneer Day celebration. You can also walk in the footsteps of the pioneers by hiking the Original Mormon Pioneer Trail in East Canyon.
