Memorial weekend is a great time to remember our fallen service men and women, but it also heralds the beginning of summer. While it might be tempting to stay in those winter cocoons you've made, especially with the rainy weather we've been having, I've picked my top three events going on this weekend to get you out of the house and enjoying the valley.

1. Utah Pasifika Festival was created to to share, cultivate, and foster our Polynesian heritage and values in the community. This annual festival is a blast and always has great entertainment and food! Check this link for more details!

2. Sundance Showdown Super D. For those of you who are extreme mountain bikers, this event it is for you. I would go to just watch because this is bound to have some epic moments!

3. Ever watch an obstacle race TV show or an outrageous clip on YouTube and think,"I'd like to try that!"? Here's your chance to do something about it! The 5K ThrillSeeker Experience is a one-of-a-kind course designed by actual Hollywood stunt producers! This is sure to be amazing and hilarious!

Don't forget to check out the different cities Memorial Day Events. Almost all the cities within the county are having their own memorial service at their local cemetaries. Go and honor the men and women who have bravely served our country!
