The Fourth of July festivities would not be the same without SEUEPA’s annual Energy Days and members of the community turned out in force to celebrate.
Hosted each year on July 4, Energy Days is organized by the Southeastern Utah Energy Producer’s Association (SEUEPA) at the Carbon County Fairgrounds. The event kicked off with the ever-popular free hot dog dinner and activities for kids. The fun continued with an energy trivia contest, a kids’ cupcake eating contest and a pie eating contest. Members of the community were able to show their strength during the coal shoveling contest while skills were displayed during a cornhole tournament.
This year’s celebration boasted even more for the community as Price City’s popular Culture Connection series moved to the fairgrounds for the evening. Route 89 entertained through the evening before the event culminated with a hot dog eating contest, kids’ chalk art and fireworks.
“Thank you to all those who have made this event possible,” event organizers shared.
