On July 24, 1847, Brigham Young and his fellow Latter-day Saints emerged from the mouth of Emigration Canyon, pulling handcarts and driving wagons. 165 years later, colorful floats, horse-drawn carriages and pioneer wear harken back to that momentous trek. &nbsp;</p> Wed, 24 Jul 2013 21:43:16 +0000 Whittney Evans 32915 at http://kuer.org Hundreds Turn Out to Celebrate Pioneer Heritage
