Celebrate Independence Day

The big holiday weekend is here – Independence Day celebrations are kicking off in communities all around Utah. People are also celebrating by heading to the hills to camp, hike, fish and just relax and enjoy summer activities.

Most campgrounds and major recreation areas will be crowded this weekend. Many people escape from the cities on Friday afternoon and Interstate 15 often becomes contested in the Wasatch Front area (Ogden to Provo).

The Salt Lake Tribune has this roundup of local Fourth of July activities.

Provo has a huge celebration, capped by the popular Stadium of Fire. Grammy Award-winning country singer Carrie Underwood will perform at the event. The Deseret News has this preview.

Firework restrictions have been imposed in many area, including National Parks and National Forests. Fox 13 his this report about restrictions in the Salt Lake area.

We hope you enjoy the holiday, and the spirit of Independence Day.
