Crushin' It At The Demolition Derby

Hello everyone!
Last week we had a holiday here in Utah.
It was Pioneer Day, also known as the 24th of July.
It honors the day the pioneers first entered Utah.
To celebrate Erik and I spent a few nights at my family's cabin and went to the Demolition Derby in town.

We attended it for the first time a few years ago and had so much fun.
The food, the atmosphere, watching cars ram into each other.
We loved it!
We try to go whenever we can and we were so stoked that we were able to pull it off this year.

We got to the grounds about an hour before it started to avoid the crowds and get a chance to check out the local vendors.
Then we headed to our seats. 
We settled in and people watched until it began.
We watched and cheered as the cars raced and hit each other until only one was left standing.

After the first heat, we decided to grab some food.
Erik got a Hawaiian plate and I opted for a cheeseburger and fries.

The lines were a little long so we missed the second heat but, made it back just in time for the third.
Erik went back for some Deep Fried Oreos.
We had never tried them before and figured this was as good a place as any.
We enjoyed our food while watching the show.

Towards the end, the sun started to set behind the stadium and it was absolutely gorgeous!

After the Demolition Derby, they have a firework show.
They turn off all the lights in the stadium and shoot the fireworks just south so you don't have to move an inch.
I am always so impressed by how good it is for such a small town!

It was such a fun night and I am crossing my fingers and toes that we can make it back next year.
Have you ever been to a Demolition Derby?

All my love,

P.S. Head over to my Instagram for a giveaway!
I am giving away TWO pairs of earrings from Ivy Jo Boutique!
