When the news of our local leaders’ intention to tear down everything except the anchor buildings on the north, south, east and west corners of an entire block in the center of downtown St. George, to put in grass, the announcement was met with disbelief! What could our leaders have been thinking in what is now the #1 fastest growing metro-area in the US and where land is anything but affordable?
But what has been created on this city block is now the envy of communities all over the state of Utah and beyond as a gathering place for fun, socializing and playing in the water on any hot summer day! What was at first much- maligned, our extremely popular Town Square complete with a splash pad, lazy river and a completely-paid-off carousel is now a beautiful piece of locally-owned Americana. Our Town Square – truly at the heart of downtown St. George immediately south of the St. George LDS Tabernacle – has become the centerpiece in our community for family fun. It is also the preferred location for large community events including the ever-popular St. George Art Festival held annually on Easter weekend.
On alternating Saturdays from late May to mid-August, our Town Square also becomes an outdoor movie theater where popular, family-friendly films are shown free-of-charge to a large audience of young and old who bring a picnic – or buy from local vendors at the event – as well as blankets, lounge chairs, cold drinks and even popcorn – to enjoy for two hours under the stars.
This year, the dates and films you’ll see are as follows:
|May 25||The Flyboys||July 27||Coco|
|June 8||Ferdinand||Aug. 10||Wonder|
|June 22||Mulan||Aug. 24||Beauty and the Beast Sing Along|
|July 13||Despicable Me 3|
