Sunset on the Square
This is a free movie out on the grass that’s gained so much popularity because of the fun family friendly environment. At the Town Square in St George they set up a huge projector and you are able to bring blankets and the whole family to watch a movie. This months movie is Wreck it Ralph.
The movie is shown on a giant outdoor movie screen, and they even have vendors for face painting, games, food and some water balloon challenges. The movie begins at dusk but all of the other entertainment and fun begins at 5 pm at Town Square Park, 175 E. 200 North, St. George.
