(KSL News) Fourth of July activities are lighting up Utah today. It began early this morning with parades all across the state.

A lot of sirens, dancing, candy tossing, and yes, even a robotic police dog... at least in Centerville's parade.

Kaysville's celebration included jet flyovers, along with the traditional marching bands, floats, and crowded streets.

Down in Provo, Utah's former governor and first lady, Mike and Jackie Leavitt, graced the streets of Happy Valley.

Hot air balloons lined the mountain horizon and bi-plane and jet flyovers filled the sky.

Some of our co-workers also took part, riding on the KSL-5 float.

People gathered on the streets of Provo as early as 6:00 last night to get their hands on their favorite location.
