Garden City Raspberry Days July 31 - August 2

In the Bear Lake area, in extreme northern Utah, farmers grow amazingly good raspberries. And, in turn, those raspberries are used in mighty fine milk sakes. The harvest is usually prolific and has come to be an icon for the region. You can buy the raspberries in local markets or at roadside stands.

The communities there even stage an annual "Raspberry Days Festival."

This year the Raspberry Days Festival will be held July 31 - August 2. This website has details. Here are highlights:

The Raspberry Days Festival is an incredible event held to celebrate the harvest of the world famous Bear Lake Raspberries. The Raspberry harvest usually starts around the 3rd week of July and lasts 3-4 weeks. The Raspberry Days Festival is an annual event, which begins two days prior to the first Saturday in August. The festival is a fun filled 3 days with the Little Miss Berry Pageant, the craft fair with continuous entertainment, the Parade on the Boulevard, the Rodeo and 5K run in Laketown, the Pancake Breakfast at the Garden City Park, dances, and ending with the fireworks on the Beach.

Come and watch "decorated and lit up" boats leave the marina on the water to go to the location of the Raspberry Days Festival fireworks display. After the fireworks, they will return to the marina. The best time to watch them will be after the fireworks display as they return to the marina.
