Sometimes living in the great state of Utah, best known for its Mormons, I just have to embrace the strangeness and giggle uncontrollably while taking pictures.
Pioneer Day in Salt Lake City was one of those days. (Pioneer Day is a state holiday to celebrate the Mormons showing up in 1847 and declaring “This is the place.” It’s pretty much a less alcoholic version of Independence Day.)
Most of the giggling occurred when the above Disney does steampunk with faith float above went by. I love a good steampunky anything, especially costumes. So when the colorful Dream Machine went by I was thrilled with the amount of gears and googles happening, albeit a bit confused by the happy color scheme. Now imagine my delight when the second version of the float went by led by a banner declaring “Spirit of Faith” award.
Yep, that happened.
