This last Saturday, July 18th, youth from all over Utah gathered to celebrate their pioneer heritage and imagine how they can pioneer the future. Amidst the bands, costumes, and candy were some pretty spectacular Mormon-themed floats put together by stakes and organizations who participated in the celebration.
Though they were all impressive, here are nine of our favorite floats from the Days of '47 Youth Parade with inspiring LDS messages.
