West Jordan Parade which is in its 62nd year, will happen on Monday the 4th of July. Parade will start at the City Hall on 8000 South at 10:30 and end up at 7000 South. You can always expect plenty of floats, music, marching bands and lots of animals. People start saving their road side spots days in advanced, so is you want a front row seat, you will have to get out early.
This year the carnival will be back at the Veteran’s Memorial Park starting on July 1 and running on 2nd and the 4th. What more fun than to ride the many rides, check out the local vendors that will be on hand, eat at the many food carts or just people watch.
The traditional West Jordan Stampede Rodeo brings the old time west into the city. Watch the tough cowboys take on the unpredictable animals from horseback riding to the ever tough bull riders, who will prevail? And you can’t miss the Mutton Bustin’ Challenge going on all three days where the kids will see how long they can ride a sheep. West Jordan Stampede Rodeo started in 1954 and features Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), which will have some of the top athletes competing with each other.
Ending this pack full and fun weekend will be the anticipated West Jordan Fireworks. This spectacular display of the fireworks will be a nice finale to July 4th.
