Iron County has rich and inspiring history which is worth celebrating. Fall is a very special time of the year, for it means the harvesting of crops and the trailing of livestock from the high mountain ranges to the desert for winter, which is a yearly tradition. May we never forget the people, animals and resources that built such a great community and legacy.
We are very pleased and proud that once again they will parade down Main Street and be celebrated for all they represent. The first sheep were herded up from town to Cedar Mountain in 1870, and every year since then they have made the trek from the mountain to the valley making their way through Cedar City. Join us for the great celebration!
