NIBLEY – Heritage Days in Nibley City kicked off last Saturday and will continue through Saturday, June 22.

“So far it has been fantastic,” said Nibley City’s Recreation Director Chad Wright on Thursday. “It is going very well.”

The week of celebration started last Saturday, June 15 with a fun run. There was also a disc golf tournament both went well, Wright said.

There was a kids coloring contest. The pictures can be seen in the windows of the gym at Heritage Elementary School located at 925 W. 3200 S.  

“We had more entries in the coloring contest than we have ever had,” he said. “We had to make-up some more categories to give more awards. Even the adult entries we added a few years ago looked good.”

The results of the Chalk the Walk competition can be found at Anhder Park located at 294 W 3200 S.

“We invited Tonya Youngberg, a nationally-recognized chalk artist that recently moved to Nibley, to enter,” Wright said. “She did a tiger and she inspired a lot of people to step up their chalk art.”

Youngberg is headed to Italy to an international chalk art convention later this year.

The biggest days of the celebration are yet to come.

Friday evening there is a community dinner also be held at Anhder Park. The dinner will be catered by Firehouse Pizza. The dinner should be pre-purchased to ensure a seat. Day-of purchased meals may be limited.

Quilts from the annual Quilt Show will be on display Friday and Saturday, June 21 and 22 from noon until 6 p.m. at Nibley City Hall, located at 455 W. 3200 S. Admission is free and there is also a raffle for one of the selected quilts.

Saturday there is a host of activities for the families, including an 11 a.m. parade with classic cars, firetrucks, local dance groups, businesses and more.
