Jul. 22, 2014 – AMERICAN FORK, Utah — LA Nails 1 will be closed July 24th, 2014 in observation of Pioneer Day and will reopen Friday July 25th for normal business.
Pioneer Day is a holiday unique to Utah. It celebrates the trek and entrance into the Salt Lake Valley by the Mormon leader Brigham Young on July 24, 1847. Salt Lake City itself celebrates with the Days of 47 Parade and other festivities.
The holiday has been celebrated since 1857 back when Utah was a territory. It is a long stand tradition in Utah puncuated by BBQ’s and fireworks.
La Nails 1 has been in American Fork since 1995 and under the current ownership since 2011.
Customers routinely order nail art to match holidays such July 4th with red white and blue flags, and Christmas with snow men, santa, and red and green themes. For Pioneer Day some clients come prepared with photos of their desired nail art which could include covered wagons, LDS symbols, and the Salt Lake Temple.
Not all businesses in Utah are closed during Pioneer Day. It’s not as big as the major National holidays so not everyone has the day off in which to relax and celebrate.
