SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – If you really want to get an insight into what our Pioneer ancestors went through, then there’s only one place to be.

At This Is The Place Hertiage Park, there are special activities on display this weekend including dancing and a watermelon eating contest.

Festivities also includes things the Pioneers might have been doing after they came to the valley.

Ciara Green, who is playing a Pioneer girl, told Good4Utah “I feel like it’s a really good opportunity to remember the past and know what people have gone through, how we can apply that to our lives and know how they went through hard things.”

The park is open with holiday celebrations this weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
