Brigham Young Loved a Party

On one tour to the southern settlements, Brigham took a large party with him, including several apostles, actors and actresses, musicians, and some of his family members. A parade led by a brass band welcomed them when they reached Nephi. After their visit, the traveling party “kidnapped” the brass band to go with them further south. When they got to Fillmore, the territorial capitol, there was a parade there also, where “anvils boomed, cows bellowed, horses bucked, donkeys brayed, women shouted, youngsters yelled, and dogs yelped.” The guests were served a delicious dinner; and afterwards, they were escorted to the Capitol Building where the musicians, including the brass band, played, and the community danced until daybreak.
