Hyrum & Lewiston 4th Of July Celebrations - Cache Valley, Utah

Besides the Freedom Fire fireworks, Logan City itself doesn't have a 4th of July parade or events. But two smaller communities, Lewiston and Hyrum, both have really fun hometown July 4th celebrations featuring rodeos, breakfasts, parades, carnivals, patriotic programs, fireworks, and other events. Logan, instead, has a Pioneer Day celebration and parade on our around the 24th of July. For those who are not from here and don't know about Pioneer Day, it's a day that celebrates the Mormon pioneers' 1847 arrival into what would become Utah. Pioneer Day is to Utah what Independence Day is to the nation - a Founders Day, essentially.

There may be other community celebrations throughout the valley, but these are the ones I know of.


Lewiston is about 20 miles north of Logan on the Utah-Idaho border. Its parade starts at 9:15am on July 4 at Center and Main Streets. Fireworks are at dusk at the city fields/rodeo grounds. There are tons of other events throughout the day, so click this schedule for all the info, or visit Lewiston City's website or the Lewiston 4th of July blog they have set up for the events.

Hyrum is about 8 miles south of Logan on Highway 165. Their festivities on the 4th of July start with a chuck wagon breakfast from 7-10am and continue throughout the day, including a parade at noon and fireworks at dusk. Visit Hyrum City's website for all the details.



P.S.: How and where will you be celebrating the 4th of July?
