Tuacahn’s multi-faceted Christmas in the Canyon is a visit with Santa Claus, twinkling lights, holiday music and hot cocoa in the cold. It also features a live nativity to remind us of the “reason for the season,” shopping in the Tuacahn gift shop and holiday train rides. The Live Nativity, with music, narration and volunteer actors telling the story of the birth of the Christ Child, has a $2 charge per person or $15 for an entire family (up to 10 individuals). The Live Nativity plays in the amphitheater at 7 p.m. with a repeat performance at 8 p.m., but there is no admission charge to visit Tuacahn and enjoy this delightful Christmas holiday event – Tuacahn’s way of saying “thank you” for another successful year.

There are just some names all of us recognize: Elvis, Sonny and Cher, Adolf Hitler, Churchill, Einstein, McDonald’s, Walmart … and The Beatles. Whether they are part of your generation or not, the individuals behind these names can certainly be said to have made their mark on the world!
The Beatles burst on the scene in the early 1960’s to become the best selling rock band in history. Their new brand of rock music brought throngs of adoring teenaged fans to the frenzy known as “Beatlemania.” Even today – more than 50 years after they first stepped on stage – Beatles’ classics such as “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “A Day In The Life,” “Twist And Shout,” “Here Comes The Sun,” and “Hey Jude” remind generations of their youth and “first love.”

The St. George Art Museum’s 10th Annual “For the Love of Art” Home Show is a “little bit of mystery and a whole lot of fun,” scheduled this year on the mornings of Friday, September 22 and Saturday, September 23.

To protect the privacy of our homeowners, the location of each home will be revealed only when art lovers arrive at the address. The fun is getting to share the ride with friends and neighbors – also on the tour – or get acquainted with other art lovers on one of three comfortable and air-conditioned buses.

Cohan and adapted by Joseph Hanreddy, is certain to be a memorable evening of fun, laughter and edge-of-the-seat anticipation. The story line tells of the happenings on “one dark and stormy night when a wild wind blows all sorts of oddball characters into a remote Utah tavern—a mysterious vagabond, a damsel in distress, a politician, his daughter, and her fiancé. A thief is on the loose, suspicions abound, and no one is who they seem! Everyone tries to solve the crime, which only multiplies the laughter as this melodramatic farce rolls to its madcap ending.”
