Pioneer Day festivities are in full swing this weekend, with parades, rodeos and Polynesian dancing taking center stage.

The Bountiful Handcart Days parade and Days of '47 culture fest are on today's agenda.

As part of the celebration, dancers of the Polynesians of Salt Lake also are performing at Cottonwood High School at 7 p.m. July 25, 26 and 27. The show made its debut Thursday night to an audience of 2,500. The play, which depicts the pioneers who went to the Polynesian Islands, is free to the public.

In anticipation of July 24th festivities and Tuesday's showcase parade, the Salt Lake Police Department has released a list of parade regulations, including:

Parade watchers cannot reserve public property along a parade route until 8 p.m. on the night prior to the event.

Parade watchers may not reserve space for anyone other than themselves and may not use ropes, tents, barricades or other barriers to reserve space.

Parade watchers may not park along the parade route from 8 p.m. on the night before the event and may not block public access on sidewalks.

Dogs (leashed or unleashed) are prohibited unless they are seeing-eye dogs or are officially part of the event.
