Taylorsville - Taylorsville Dayzz 2015 was bigger and better than ever! Word has definitely gotten out about the fun, family friendly event. The Billy Joel and Elton John Tribute drew several thousand audience members and the next night, the Elvis, Cher, Garth Brooks and Dolly Tribute performed to a crowd of over 20,000. Many women were clamoring for the scarves Elvis was handing out and Garth proved there are a lot of Country fans in Taylorsville.
Several hundred people enjoyed “How to Train Your Dragon 2” at the movie in the park and the Cannoneers of the Wasatch blasted 18 live cannons in conjunction with the Utah Symphony’s 1812 Overture.
130 cars entered the car show with everything from antiques to muscle cars.
The pony ride and petting zoo were very popular with the little ones.
The new carnival ride “Sizzler” was guaranteed to scramble you dinner and their was a great variety of different food offerings.
The culmination of the festivities was the 30 minute long Fireworks Extravaganza on Saturday night. There was a big surprise at the end of the fireworks show when 9 fireballs were ignited at the same time for a terrific finish. People were so surprised they didn’t know if it was a mishap or a planned event.
Of course the fireworks artist, Vortex Fireworks Artists had the whole thing planned to add a little spice to the end of the show and a great celebration!
