  • Happy kids delighting in their delivery of mischievous missiles of taffy to their family and friends sheltered in the shade of the Fuel Up Zion Gas, Food & Drinks Sinclair Station in the heart of town. They are (Left-to-right): Mitchell Hoyt, Carson Steed, Philip Hoyt, William Peterson, Meah Hoyt, Charlotte Peterson, Norah Hoyt, Jack Hoyt and Harper Hoyt.

  • Encircled by bubbles, balloons and bikes, Mallory Sorensen easily balances aboard her E-bike coming up from the detoured turnaround point along State Street/Highway 89.

  • Reining ‘Queen’ Marla Jennings and pony named “Peanuts” leading the Orderville Pioneer Day Parade accompanied by sons Jack (left) and Jett, along with daughter Jane managing both the original 1896 Utah State flag, as well as the current version.
