The Steel Days Are Here!

It's a week-long par-tay in American Fork.

For the official calendar, go dig your utility bill out of the recycling, or check here at AFCity.org.

For more details on a prolific profusion of events including parade, carnival, baby contest, art show, car show and cruise, craft, quilt and doll shows, golf and horseshoe tournaments, steak fry, 5K, or to find out which movie will be showing after Friday's picnic in the park, check out today's Daily Herald article, "American Fork Steel Days Full of Events."

Also in the Herald, look for a fitting and well-deserved tribute to this year's Grand Marshalls Dan and Karen Adams. Read about last Saturday's Tour de Donut (this is public health?) and about the old root beer bottles that inspired last night's tour of the DUP Museum in Robinson Park. (I went, and was inspired.)

Additional events include the American Fork Symphony (tonight!) and, in place of the traditional Big Show, Reality Nite featuring American Fork Idol. Contestants are listed in the Herald article, but the best talent of the night may well be the Master of Ceremonies, Sam Beeson.

Last of all come the fireworks, so the Saturday show will end with its traditional bang.

A few don'ts: Don't forget to buy discount carnival tickets from participating downtown merchants before noon tomorrow (Wednesday). Don't neglect to support the peerless American Fork Marching Band at breakfast Saturday morning in the Albertsons parking lot. And don't forget to thank the amazing Steel Days volunteers who put all this fun in American Fork!
