The 2014 St George Utah Christmas Light Spectacular
The 2014 St George Utah Christmas Light Spectacular
One of my favorite holiday traditions is jumping in the car, bundling up with blankets and hot cocoa, turning up the Christmas tunes and driving around St George to see all the gorgeous light displays!
No more driving around, wandering through neighborhoods, hoping to see some nice lighting displays! Hedgehog Electric has taken the guessing game out of it and is sponsoring "The 2014 St George Utah Christmas Light Spectacular". They even provide a driving map to some of the most creative and elaborate homes and businesses in the St George area this year. HedgeHog Electric will also donate $1 to Habitat for Humanity for all Facebook likes received on their Facebook page during the month of December. All of the displays are free of charge, although some of them may invite you to make a donation which would go to various causes.
The real estate market definitely continues to improve here in St George during 2014! The buying market is becoming very competitive, especially in the "under $250k" price range.
