ST. GEORGE — Although there will be no root beer floats during this year’s Heritage Day celebration due to COVID-19 related issues, the city of St. George plans to mark its 159th birthday with free admission to many of its attractions and facilities Jan. 16.
According to a press release issued by the city, the planned festivities include the following:
- Free admission to the Sand Hollow Aquatic Center (1144 N. 2400 West).
- Free admission to the St. George Recreation Center (285 S. 400 East).
- Free admission to the St. George Art Museum (47 E. 200 North).
- Free rides all day on SunTran buses. Access the schedule here.
- Free train rides at Thunder Junction All-Abilities Park (1851 S. Dixie Drive). The facility itself is always free to attend.
David Cordero, the city of St. George’s communications and marketing director, said in the press release that city officials are sad they won’t be serving traditional root beer floats this year, “but we can still celebrate our beautiful city in a fun, safe and meaningful way.”
“We encourage everyone to visit the facilities that will be free on the 16th — especially if you have yet to experience them — and discover some of our hidden gems,” he said.
