The Days of ‘47 parade, the state’s largest parade, has been quoted a cost estimate of “$0.00” by the city, according to estimates obtained by The Tribune. But the Utah Pride Center could pay as much as $10,000 for police that protected Sunday’s Gay Pride Parade, and the Hibernian Society of Utah was charged $2,702.53 for the St. P...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

A Civil War reenactment group fired a cannon on 800 East, just south of Center Street, at the beginning of the parade. When the cannon went off, a spark landed on “a large pouch that contained additional charges for the cannon,” according to an Orem Police news release. The pouch exploded and hurt three children who were part of the reenactment group. They were treated at the scene and taken to the hospital.

Those are just the latest hot-button controversies dogging a Days of ’47 Parade that strives to dodge controversy. Earlier this week, the parade committee again refused to let the gay-friendly organization Mormons Building Bridges participate in the July 24 procession — despite a request from the Salt Lake City Council.
