The Oneida Stake Academy will be hosting its first-annual Franklin County Heritage Celebration this year on Pioneer Day.
“We certainly haven’t pinned down many details at this point,” said Saundra Hubbard, with the Academy events committee. “We will be meeting periodically over the next few weeks to firm up what will be happening for the July 24 event.”
Hubbard said it will start at 4 p.m. in the Benson Park, adjacent to the Academy building, and will conclude around 8 p.m. “We have discussed with the city council clearing all vehicles on 100 East from Oneida to 100 South for the day,” she said.
Plans call for an old-fashioned pioneer Dutch-oven dinner for the entire community, Hubbard said.
“There will be music on a portable bandstand. A variety of heritage displays will be available for the public. Horse and carriage rides will be given for anyone who is interested,” she added. “We hope to have a street dance.”
