The city of Ammon will host its annual Ammon Days event on Saturday, August 4.
Sean Colleti, Mayor of Ammon, told BYU-Idaho Radio this event is for the entire community.
“It’s for the community to come together and have fun, free events,” Colleti said. “It’s just an opportunity to put aside your cares and come and join together as a community to enjoy each other and celebrate Ammon.”
The event will begin on Saturday morning at 9 at McCowin Park. The day will begin with a flag ceremony followed by a free breakfast.
Colleti said the event will have different demonstrations, vendor booths, ping pong ball drop, free open swim, concert and other activities and events for everyone.
The event brings together a lot of people from the community to participate and be a part of Ammon Days, Colleti said.
“All of our employees are involved in this effort,” Colleti said. “If you come you will see employees at every booth and every station. They are working to make it a special day for the citizens.”
Colleti said it is important to come together and spend time with people in your own community.
“There is something that is so beneficial to being among the people in your community and rubbing shoulders with them, and talking about things in the community,” Colleti said. “I think we spend so much time by ourselves in our homes on the internet, that we don’t get out that improve the community as much as we should.”
