(KSL News) Members of Utah's Armenian community took to the street today in celebration.

This was the one-year anniversary of the naming of 800 East, in the Millcreek area, to Ararat St.

Mt. Ararat is symbolic to Armenians around the world because of the belief that Noah's Ark came to rest there following the great flood.

Today's celebration was a way to raise awareness of Utah's Armenian community. In the future, this group hopes to publish a newspaper in their native language.
