2024 Grand Marshal

The Grand Marshal of the 2024 Riverton Town Days Parade is Monte Peterson. Monte is a native-born and lifetime resident of Riverton. He has served the community as the third generation owner and operator of Riverton's community-based grocery store, Peterson's Market. Monte cherishes his career serving friends and neighbors through the grocery business. He has represented Riverton and our community in service with the Utah National Guard, and as a member and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Associated Food Stores. Monte has supported local community events and schools through financial donations and volunteer time, including volunteering as a leader in Boy Scouts, a little league baseball coach, and several responsibilities with his local church. His wife, Shelly Peterson, was born in our neighboring community of Bluffdale. She has taught school for Jordan School District and Riverton Elementary. We're thrilled to have Monte Peterson as this year's Grand Marshal!
