SALT LAKE CITY — The KSL 5 Days of ’47 Parade is back in Salt Lake City.

This year’s celebrations — which begin at 9 a.m. Saturday — will commemorate the 175th anniversary of Latter-day Saint pioneers arriving in the Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847.

Several roads will be closed Saturday as the parade and competing runners snake through town.

“To help ensure the safety of participants and spectators, traffic will be allowed to cross over the marathon route, when possible, but traffic will not be allowed to cross the parade route until the parade is finished,” a news release from the Salt Lake City Police Department stated.
