Concert at Saltair
Built in 1893, it was once known as Salt Lake’s Coney Island, the most popular family destination west of New York City. It was one of the first amusement parks in America. There were amusement park rides, rodeos, touring vaudeville companies, hot air balloons and firework displays. It also had the world’s largest dance floor where some incredible dances and balls were held. The main attraction was floating in the Great Salt Lake. Due to the salt content of the lake, swimming in the lake was compared to “rolling and floating on the water like a dry log” even today visitors still enjoy “floating like a cork” in the Great Salt Lake. Today, the Saltair pavilion is a popular concert venue for touring bands and comedians.
