Lehi Heritage Day 2021

What Lehians did for entertainment in the 1960s is this year’s Lehi Heritage Day theme. Check out the schedule below. The public is invited to a parade, Honoree Celebration, displays and activities, a classic car and bike show and dinner by Chick-fil-A.

This year’s Lehi Heritage Day will be a throwback to the 1960s and what the people of Lehi did for entertainment then. With the theme, “Back to the ‘60s,” this year’s Labor Day event promises to be the best yet. The annual event takes place at the Legacy Center at 123 N. Center on Sept. 6.

The day will go as follows:

  • Showcase Parade—2:30 p.m., will travel on Main Street from 400 East to Center Street.
  • Honoree Celebration—3 p.m., with the mayor and city council under a giant tent in front of the Legacy Center. Seating is limited; bring a lawn chair. During this event, honorees will be presented with their own brick in the Walk of Fame Garden.
  • Honorees greet visitors—4-6 p.m., in the Senior Center where there will be displays honoring them.
  • “Back to the ‘60s,” displays, activities and food (Chick-fil-A)—4-6 p.m., in the North Gym of the Legacy Center.
  • Classic Car Show—4-6 p.m., in the east parking lot of the Legacy Center. No entry fee. The first 20 cars to make a $10 donation to the Lehi Historical Society will be given a pass to drive in the Showcase Parade. A parking spot will be reserved for all parade participants. For more information on the car show, go to LehiHistory.com or call 801-836-2594.

Of the 1960s theme, Bangerter said, “We will be focusing on the things people did for date night, church activities like roadshows and Gold and Green Balls, outside activities like playing at Utah Lake and ice skating on the Mill Pond, the Lehi Round-Up Rodeo, high school sports, Saratoga Resort and local bands.”
