SALT LAKE CITY — After a year-long absence the Pioneer Day / Days of ’47 Parade is back on. The celebrations on Friday will commemorate the 174th anniversary of Latter-day Saint Pioneers entering the Salt Lake Valley for the first time on July 24, 1847.  

With those celebrations, there will be a fair number of road closures in Salt Lake City.
