(Trains are a popular theme among the Days of '47 Parade floats, but this one by the Farmington North Stake takes a different approach: A tunnel, with a trolley coming out one end and a FrontRunner train coming out the other. (Photo by Sean P. Means | The Salt Lake Tribune) )
An early taste of the Days of '47 Parade [slideshow]

It's six days until the Days of '47 Parade, Utah's annual celebration of the pioneer spirit.

For those who don't like camping out overnight or sitting in the hot sun in downtown Salt Lake City, the parade's organizers previewed the floats at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy earlier this week.
