Sunday night the flag was marched up Grove Creek Drive (pictures courtesy of Facebook):

The Candy Bomber, Gail Halvorsen, was there greeting people and then a plane flew over and dropped candy tied to parachutes.
The flag paraded up the street was the one they've used in the past. A new flag is in the canyon this year, the biggest flag ever flown in the United States. The old flag, the one paraded up the street, fits in the blue/star field of the new flag. The new flag weighs 500 pounds and the stars are each five feet wide! (The new flag wouldn't fit in the street so that's why they walked the old one up.)

Pleasant Grove is a nice place to be.
