Organized by Lehi City and the Lehi Historical Society and Archives, Lehi Heritage Day celebrates Lehi’s finest contributors today as well as the city’s impressive past. The event begins with activities that celebrate the honorees and then wraps up with events honoring the past.
Lehi Heritage Day honorees are celebrated with a feature article in the Lehi Free Press prior to the actual event. Then, on Labor Day, honorees ride in the Lehi Heritage Day Showcase Parade up Center Street from 600 North to the Legacy Center and are celebrated in a special program with the mayor and city council members. Most especially, each honoree is awarded their own brick in the Walk of Fame Garden in front of the Legacy Center at 123 N. Center. After the program, honorees move into the Senior Center for a meet-and-greet with the public, family and friends.
During this same time, historic displays and activities, Chick-fil-A and a classic car and bike show are also in progress. This year’s Lehi Heritage Day theme will revolve around the beautiful old homes of Lehi as it did last year.
