Nestled between Spanish Fork and Payson at the southern end of Utah County is the city of Salem. Nicknamed the “City of Peace,” Salem is a city to be celebrated.
Each year about this time, residents of Salem prepare for Salem Days, a week-long celebration of more than 32 events that bring residents together to eat, compete and entertain.
After months of planning the event, in what was a hard decision, city leaders chose to cancel all events because of the increase in COVID-19 cases in the state and in the city. Not even the annual fireworks appear this year.
