Pioneer Day, a Utah state holiday, is celebrated on July 24, the anniversary of the arrival of the Mormon pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847.

  This year, the Moab community is once again invited to celebrate Pioneer Day with a free ice cream social hosted by the Museum of Moab. The event is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Thursday, July 24, on the lawn just outside the museum, located at 118 E. Center St.

The free public event includes ice cream cones for folks of all ages and also features games, fun, and light entertainment by local musicians and other performers.

The museum has been hosting an ice cream social in celebration of Pioneer Day since 1978. For more information about the event, call the museum at 435-259-7985.
