Members of the community celebrated Price City’s annual International Days celebration on Thursday, Friday and Saturday last week.
The three-day event kicked off on Thursday at the Price City Peace Gardens. There, the American Legion Post #3 performed the flag ceremony while Leah Brandt sang the national anthem.
The first lady of Price City welcomed those in attendance to have fun listening to the returning band Fire At Will. Mayor Joe Piccolo recognized certain citizens for junior marshall, grand marshall, citizen of the year, visionary service leader and the youth involvement achievement award.
The band Fire At Will then provided entertainment for those in attendance. Fire At Will is a five-man classic rock band with Kyle Johnson as lead vocalist, Tucker Hansen on the keyboard, Will Terris performing percussion, Lew Woolford as lead guitarist and Mark Stone on the bass guitar.
On Friday, festivities took place throughout the day at Washington Park. Food, vendors and entertainers kept those in attendance busy while Castleview Hospital kept children entertained during kids day. Free swimming also took place at the Desert Wave Pool. The evening rounded out with a burnout contest on Main Street and a movie in the park.
The Lions Club started Saturday’s celebration with breakfast in the park while United Way and Carbon County Recreation hosted a 5K run. Activities continued as golfers gathered for the International Days Golf Championship, where 20-year-old Derek Young won a Chevy Cruze from Tony Basso.
The annual grand parade on Price Main Street then featured a variety of floats as American Legion Post #3 headed the procession. Price City Grand Marshal Dave Zaccaria, Citizen of the Year Errol Holt and Junior Grand Marshal Brandon Jensen were also featured in the parade.
