Whether you live in or are visiting St. George for the holidays, there are many events to attend to help fill your time and make your holidays this year, one to remember. Tuacahn’s annual Christmas in the Canyon event returns and will continue through December 23rd. The event is held at the Amphitheater located at 1100 Tuacahn Drive in Ivins. The Canyon festivities are held every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 6:30 pm to 9 pm. The event includes the live nativity, holiday hay ride, Santa’s flying swing, kid’s mini-train ride and, of course, Santa will be there. You can even enjoy plenty of entertainment in the main plaza, too.
You can visit the live nativity, which is held in the Amphitheater from 7 pm to 8 pm each night. Admission is $2 per person or $10 per family. The nativity is presented by a volunteer cast of local groups that consists of 40 to 80 volunteers along with live animals. The Holiday hayride is an additional $2 per person. Participants are taken for a tour of the grounds to see the 318,000 holiday light display. Santa’s flying swing and the mini-train ride are for small children under the age of eight. Both cost an additional $2 per child. Visiting Santa and all of the entertainment in the plaza is free to everyone.
