Well, Thanksgiving 2017 is currently in the books and now we get to set our sights on Christmas. There is so much going on around the St. George Utah area this holiday season so I wanted to showcase some of my favorites. Some of these I’ve done and some I plan on doing this year.
Hot chocolate and lights. Located in St. George’s city center of the gorgeous lights of downtown. Grab your hot cocoa is in the Town Square, and enjoy a beautiful scenery for everyone to enjoy.
The Temple lights. Not that the church isn’t already a spectacle on its own, but during Christmas, the temple shines with thousands of beautiful lights on the temple grounds and throughout the nearby neighborhoods. It’s one of the highlights of the Christmas season.
The Dickens Festival. At the Dixie convention center, the deacons festival will always put you in the holiday mood. Enjoy live music, hundreds of Christmas vendors and say that will make his appearance for photos. Ride the train, eat some chestnuts roasting on an open fire, kettle corn, hot chocolate and more. This is not just another craft show that an unusual entertainment and shopping experience. In St. George it’s located at 1835 South Convention Ctr. opening November 29 through December 2 from 10:00 AM until 9:00 PM. Admission is just seven dollars for adults with discounts for seniors and children.
Tuacahn’s Christmas in the Canyon. This unique festival of lights and live nativity is Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings through December 23. The event is from 6:30 PM until 9 PM in the Tuacahn Plaza and it’s free to the public. There’s a live nativity each night at the amphitheater at 7 PM and 8 PM and there is a very small cost for this per family. This is a beautiful and traditional memory to remind us what Christmas is really about.
And of course, we can’t forget all of the hundreds of neighborhoods around St. George that are decked out in beautiful Christmas lights. Stay tuned to our website for more details on these neighborhoods as more and more families continue to put up the lights throughout the month. And from my family to your family I wish you a Merry Christmas and happy holidays.
