For many in Utah, it's Pioneer Day.

However, for others, it's Pie 'n Beer Day.

Utahns celebrate the state holiday in a few different ways.

Pioneer Day commemorates the day Brigham Young and his followers arrived in Salt Lake July 24, 1847.

Parades, fireworks and rodeos are just a few ways to mark the day.

For the pie and beer lovers, it's a day of carbs including fruit pies, pizza pies and of course, the malt beverage.
