Title Twenty Fourth of July
Description The beautiful Goddess of Liberty, her special white float drawn by six white horses, well-groomed and decorated with white pompoms, came into view. The float, a hayrack done in white bunting, carried a beautiful young lady dressed in white with a crown of gold, and her two lovely attendants. The majestic title, Miss Liberty, completed the breath taking pageant. Miss Utah followed, Her float was decorated in red, white and blue bunting. The word "Utah" on her crown, and the pre-sence of her two attendants seated by her completed the gorgeous float drawn by four bay horses decorated in red pompoms. The 13 original states were represented by 13 lovely ladies all dressed in white and carrying a torch to signify our begin- ning as a nation. Their float was appropriately decorated and drawn by a team of gray horses, which were decorated with torches to match. Miss Mt. Pleasant brough many "oos" and "aws" as her lovely float, drawn by four horses, made its way into view. She was attended by several lovely girls with banners across their shoulders. All were proud to represent their beautiful city. Miss Sanpete brought a good laugh as she came riding on a donkey decorated in carrots. Carrot's were all over, hanging on the bridle and saddle. Her crown was carrots, and a great corsage of carrots completed her dress. Following Miss Sanpete came the other 28 counties, repre-sented by 23 young ladies,all ridind horses, their county banners across their shoulders. Utah's best crop, a hayrack loaded with primary children, was exciting for the children and parents alike. Scenes from the bible were displayed by other church organizations. The Gleaners were will portrayed by three women bent over among sheaves of corn and wheat. Jacob's well and Moses in the bullrushes was cause for much hand-clapping as the wagons bearing these precious messages moved on. -74-
