  • St. George, UT (1888PressRelease) January 23, 2013 - St. George, Utah is 151 years old.

    The City again marked the day as they have in the past with free rides on Suntran Shuttle, free admission to all St. George City recreation facilities, including Sand Hollow Acquatic Center, St. George Arts Museum, St. George Rec Center, free rides on the Town Square Carousel, and free Root Beer Floats and Cookies served by Mayor and City Council.

    Mayor Dan McArthur spoke of the significance of the event. "It's a reminder of the history of our area," he said. "People get asked all the time, 'Why did you move to our area?' and they say it's a feeling, that something about it is unique. I want to (use the birthday celebration) to tell them why it's unique."

    This year's celebration was scaled down from the 2011 event in which the City celebrated 150 years with similar activities plus parades downtown. "We're keeping it really simple this year," he said.
