More Pageant Pictures!

I went to the Pageant again last night for the 5th time and this time I got a seat on the 3rd row! It was great to be able to see their expressions, and I cried again, of course. It was a beautiful night...no wind...not too hot and a awesome sunset!
For an hour and a half before pageant begins they have all these booths and activities going on in the fields behind the pageant stage. It is like a county fair and is really fun. The pageant casts are all there helping with it, and you can meet them and talk to them.


This was the bagpipe band that plays before the pageant in one of the pre-pageant booths. They teach people the highland fling. They also lead a parade up on stage at the beginning of pageant.

This scene represents the completion of the Temple. It was amazing how they made this Temple!

This was the final song of the Pageant. Right before this they light the real Temple on the hill behind the pageant stage and it is so beautiful. It looks like it is sitting in the sky....very effective!
