Mayor’s Corner:  See you there! 

Is there a more beautiful time of the year?  With all the blessed moisture the mountains are green, the tops of the hills are snow capped and when the skies are blue there just isn’t a prettier picture.  The trees and the flowers are blooming and the shops on Main Street, 2600 South and others are following suit by primping with the latest spring fashions inside and out.              

             I am also looking forward to summer in our City— you won’t be bored in Bountiful throughout the next few months—here’s a list of all that is going on: 

In May we have “Magic on the Sidewalk”.  If you haven’t seen it you need to stroll Main Street during that time.  We follow with the Coats for Kids Car Show in June which has served thousands of needy children in our area,  then the fabulous Handcart Days parade and celebration of our history in July.  To top things off, there are two great events in our City in August.  We once again welcome the Tour of Utah for the third year in a row.  It is a thrill to watch the participants cycle their way through our City in this grand international event.  And then our traditional Summerfest which has brought to Bountiful wonderful cultures and dancing from all over the world for 30 years!

Throughout the summer, we are also able to enjoy on an ongoing basis the Farmer’s Market on Thursday afternoons (temporarily relocated to 4th North Park), the Food Truck League in the parking lot west of City Hall on Fridays, and the free and fantastic Music in the Park concerts on select Fridays. 

For the most part, all these events are made possible by hundreds of volunteers—maybe even you and your neighbor!  Please see page 3 for more details about each of these events and—I hope to see you there!

We are truly fortunate to live in such a wonderful community where we share common values and goals and enthusiastically support the interests of our neighbors. It is an honor and a privilege to serve you as Mayor and especially to be Mayor of Bountiful City.
