Fun for the 4th

Over the weekend, cities along the Wasatch Front started celebrating the Fourth of July early. On Friday, Riverdale held a Fourth of July baby contest for children ages 6 months to 24 months. Joey Moss, right, was crowned prince. The happy boy will ride on a float in the Old Glory Days parade Tuesday in Riverdale. Provo celebrated its Freedom Festival Friday with some laughter, below, when Clark Schmuts, Zach Coder and Christy Ellis of Comedy Sportz, a local comedy club, performed at the city arts festival. The Freedom Festival continues through Tuesday. The annual fireworks extravaganza at Sugarhouse Park in Salt Lake City on Tuesday night will include sky divers and a performance of patriotic music by the Utah Symphony. Projected attendance is 60,000.
