I am from Santaquin but beginning 9th grade I went to school in Payson so I consider it home. Payson has it's big city celebration, Onion Days, over the Labor Day holiday. For a long time I don't think I really realized that Labor Day was the official holiday - it was just Onion Days. Over the years my activities have evolved. The parade is always a "must see". When I was young we begged our parents to take us on the little carnival rides. I moved on to hanging at the carnival and park with friends (definitely too cool for family), and then as I got older, we headed back to the carnival but this time to entertain the little kids. This year we went to the parade and then I didn't actually even make it out of the shade of the park - it was a hot day and I was too lazy to do much except for chase Luke. I was a little sad when I realized how few pictures I took, but at least we have a little something to remember the day.
