Thousands have until Monday to celebrate the founders instead of the Wellsville Tabernacle - a pioneer in the community first established in Cache Valley.
In addition, the historical importance of the festival - with a 100-year-old business and entertainment center in the cabins next to each other - for many, the day also aims to keep pace with family traditions.
Events - some of whom began weeks in advance - has intensified the life of the pioneers in the colonial era.
"There are just too many things to do in a day. ... We are part of the same things (Pioneer) 100 years ago. We have the old and new, "said Colin Harrison, a member of the council and the principal organizer of the event.
The highlights of the festivities of the Work Day - a living room for residents Wellsville - including the last game of softball tournament, which began two weeks ago, the antique tractor pull at the festival parade, mock battle between actors representing the Indians and pioneers, and Mount Sterling Rodeo for youth.
For Wellsville native Rena Murray, 79, the celebration was a logical continuation of a family tradition of more than 50 years - a legacy of his mother.
Like every year, hosted by Murray in the house a hundred family members from all over the valley of the family for breakfast before everyone headed for the festivities.
"The city is a great piece of work (organization of the festivities). People like to return to the celebration, although they do not live here anymore," said Murray.
Kim Turnbow, 37, who moved to Wellsville Utah County about eight years ago, the celebration of Founders Day means something different: It focuses on the cohesion of the "small town" she loves.
"We used to come here for the founder of the first actions of the day we moved in I love the small town celebrations. ... And we love a parade that runs our house. My daughter is selling cotton candy in front of our home, "Turnbow said.
Turnbow and his family, like many others, were the Tabernacle Square at 6:30 yesterday - good morning to participate in the morning race, one of the activities to celebrate.
The hard work that has begun to organize to celebrate Harrison was won, and all the organizers of the event, while watching the members of the community to enjoy their holiday vacation at breakneck speed.
"It's wonderful to see people wandering, smiling and happy," said Harrison. "Many people have a good time. And if anyone missed today going to be here next year."
