Mark your calendars for the week of July 24. Butlerville Days is the biggest party in Cottonwood Heights! Every Pioneer Day (July 24), we celebrate the founders of this area with a city celebration. You'll find a parade, food, games, live entertainment and more! The parade travels along 2700 East from Fort Union to Bengal Boulevard. Other festivities go on at Butler Park behind the Cottonwood Heights Recreation Center. In 2014, we added a 5k run/walk.

Rec. Center hosts Halloween “Monster Mash”
There were plenty of chills and thrills in the air during the “Monster Mash” sponsored by Cottonwood Heights Recreation Center and Cottonwood Heights City on Friday, October 24.
The event was held at the Cottonwood Heights Rec. center on 7500 S. 2700 East. From 5 to 7 p.m.
Some of the fun included a “pumpkin alley,” featuring over 40 pumpkins carved out by the Cottonwood Heights Youth City Council.
There was ice-skating, a treat bag for all kids, Halloween-related games in the gym and coloring activities.
One of the biggest hits was “Scales and Tails,” a 45-minute educational show featuring all kinds of “creepy crawlies,” like spiders, scorpions, lizards, a tortoise, and snakes. The show featured other exotic animals, including a giant lizard, a giant snake, a giant tortoise, and a baby alligator or crocodile.
Kids and parents attended the event wearing their favorite Halloween costumes.
A "Doggone" good time
