Provo Rocks Day

Provo has gone wild this year with the "Signature Series #provorocks" t-shirts. Most of these popular shirts were given out at the Rooftop Concert Series and have been spotted worldwide as Provo residents traveled.

Council Members embraced the opportunity to rock their own Provo shirts at the October 21st meetings. Others in the meetings (Mayor, Council staff, City Recorder, CAO) joined in on the fun as well. You'll see from the photos that nearly every person wore a different shirt. Some dressed up their choices by wearing a jacket and a few even tried to imitate the characters on their shirts.
