We can't think of a more fitting way to start off the parade, and to honor, as well as showcase, the team. Their appearance will be Davis County's version of a New York City ticker tape parade, in a sense.
It's been 28 years since a state victory has shined on the Darts, so area residents can be particularly proud of the team's efforts. This reflects on the county's first high school, and also its newest, thanks to the new facility that saw the last phase completed about a year ago.
Kaysville Mayor Brian Cook says of the team, "I want to congratulate the young men on our DHS team. Yes, for their state championship, but even more for the character they possess.
"As I have watched this team come together, it is very apparent they are a special group of young men who have truly exemplified what the word TEAM stands for."
The Clipper is proud to include the victorious Dart team in its Kaysville Parade.
We invite team supporters, everyone, for that matter, to come enjoy parades in both Kaysville and Bountiful that promise a wide variety of floats and entries.
Bountiful's parade will be held Friday night at 6:30 p.m. You can watch it along Main Street, with the route from 200 North down to City Block at about 725 South. There will also be musical entertainment and a chance to visit with Santa after the parade.
To see the football team and all of the other participants and entries in the Kaysville parade, be in place by 6 p.m. The route begins in front of the Davis High School parking lot on Main Street and heads downtown, where the parade will turn one block east at 100 North, disbanding behind the City Block on 100 East. Then, eager kids can get their chance to share gift desires with Santa.
Before the parade, at 5:45, the Kaysville-Fruit Heights Civic Committee will host a Christmas tree lighting, accompanied by musical numbers.
There will also be a Christmas Nativity/Musical program at the Kaysville LDS Tabernacle, 198 W. Center, before and after the parade, as well, further adding to the spirit and fun of the holidays.
So, please come and enjoy -- no matter which parade you choose to attend.
