Wheat & Beet Days offers continuous fun

Leader Staff

You don’t want to miss this year’s Wheat and Beet Days in Garland, July 29 – Aug. 3.

Again this year on Friday night is the Battle of the Bands.  All aspiring band groups are encouraged to participate, as well as solo numbers.  Groups will perform two family friendly numbers.  Judges will be awarding prizes.

For more info call Garland City office 257-3118 or visit the web page garlandutah.org

Also for the second year a Saturday night Street dance will be held in front of the Garland Library.  Everyone is invited.

There will be a bicycle parade and kid races on Friday night, along with several free activity booths for the youngsters, besides a bounce house and climbing wall.

The Children’s Theatre will be Monday through Wednesday, performing “Return of the Glass Slipper.”    This year the movie in the park is “Hotel Transylvania” Friday night.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Wheat and Beet Days without the Miss Bear River Valley pageant and the big firemen’s water fight.

There is an art show and quilt show on Saturday at the Garland Tabernacle.  Any form of art is welcome.  All art entries need to be taken to the Tabernacle cultural hall Friday, Aug. 2, between 5-8 p.m.  People’ Choice awards will be given.  For information, call Merlene, 801-405-7879.

    I was disappointed to see that THe Leader has chosen NOT to publish any information regarding the MISS BEAR RIVER VALLEY PAGEANT. I have enjoyed reading and learning about the local talent in our valley. It gave us a little taste of beauty contests/pageants at a local level. I watched with anticipation as several young ladies from our area have been chosen as Miss Utah and even watched them at the national level. I realize that “beauty” pageants are losing their popularity but this is tradition. As a move-in to this valley 38 years ago…that is something that I love about this valley… it’s traditions and not just the ones about sports. I hope you will reconsider your stance on this long standing tradition.

    Actually we did publish a preview on the pageant. It appeared in the Wednesday, July 31 issue as a pull out section.

    I apologize. I bought my copy of the Leader at a local store and the pull out section was missing. I did indeed find it in another copy. Thank you for publishing this information.
