Days of '47 Parade

  • 123 West South Temple Salt Lake City, UT United States (map)

Come join us & walk in the Days of '47 Parade through downtown Salt Lake City as we celebrate the heritage of our great state.

The Great Salt Lake Council has been invited to walk in this year's parade! We are excited to support the celebration of our state as well as represent the Boy Scouts of America.

Each participant will be assigned a float or group & will be responsible for carrying an award banner. 

We want to make sure that we have plenty of Scouts there to show how proud we are of our state so share this with you friends & family. Let's fill the parade with Scouts!

Sign Up Today!

Who Can Participate

This activity will be open to all Scouts & Scouters, youth (age 14+) & leaders, to participate in this celebration.

  • Cub Scouts (Adults only)

  • Scouts BSA (Youth 14+ & Adults)

  • Venturers (Youth & Adults)

  • Sea Scouts (Youth & Adults)



While the parade itself begins at 9:00am, we ask that you arrive at our gathering place (intersection of West Temple & South Temple) at least 1 hour prior to parade step off.

And remember, the parade itself will last for 3 hours so please come prepared with a snack & water. We will have some available, but it's best to always be prepared...right?


Gathering Place

We will gather at the intersection of West Temple & South Temple. If you get lost, call Samuel Ahlstrom.


Pick Up Location

The parade ends at Liberty Park. If you would like to pick up your friends or family there, feel free to do so. But it does tend to be a bit of a mad house. So we are recommending that you pick up at the LDS Church located on Harvard Avenue west of Liberty Park. Once again if you have questions, please contact Samuel Ahlstrom
