Pioneer Day is the celebration of the members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints coming to the Salt Lake Valley July 24, 1847. That was the day the first group of saints crested the mountain and saw their first glimpse of the valley. Since that time Latter-day Saints throughout the West have celebrated the occasion by remembering their ancestors and the trials they faced while crossing the dusty plains and rocky mountains.
