NEWS - "Tremonton City Days' 2020 event scaled down but still on the schedule"

TREMONTON – By Cari Doutre – July 15, 2020

While many cities and towns throughout Box Elder County and Utah are cancelling their annual summer celebrations this year due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) concerns, Tremonton City is still planning on hosting their annual City Days event - but scaled down to meet current state restrictions and guidelines.

Taking into consideration Box Elder County and Utah’s current color-coded phase, Tremonton City is using guidelines from the Bear River Health Department and modifying some activities while cancelling some all-together.

"We have eliminated mass gathering areas such as vendor booths, concert and high contact activities but we still offer participant-based activities like the softball tournament, homerun derby, pickleball tournament and new this year, a cornhole tournament," said Tremonton City in a July 6, press release.

“While the large-scale mass gathering activities will not happen this year, we have created some replacement events that will be possible regardless of an orange or yellow phase COVID-19 designation. We have also modified other traditional City Days activities to make them possible within Utah and Bear River Health Department guidelines,” it states on Tremonton City’s website. http://tremontoncity.org/City-Days/

This year’s event will start on Friday, July 17, with activities throughout the week ending on Saturday, July 25, with fireworks at 10 p.m.

“Now more than ever our community needs a little normalcy, something to look forward to. While events, programs, stores and everyday life has been shut down all around us, we need something to allow us to socialize and come together as a community, in a safe way," said Zach LeFevre, Recreation and Events Manager for Tremonton City.
