ST. GEORGE —Not sure how to keep the kids entertained this summer? The City of St. George is excited to host a plethora of free events that will excite the entire family. From outdoor cinematic experiences to creative workshops, these activities can keep children engaged and active during the summer months.

Twice each month — on the second and fourth Fridays through the end of August — Movie in the Park is set to entertain at Historic Town Square. Each movie will begin at dusk. Attendees are advised to bring a blanket or lawn chair, and refreshments. The schedule for the remainder of 2024 is as follows:

●       June 14: The FlyBoys (8:54 p.m.)

●       June 28: Elemental (8:58 p.m.)

●       July 12: Jumanji (8:57 p.m.)

●       July 26: How to Train Your Dragon 3 (8:49 p.m.)

●       August 9: Moana (8:29 p.m.)

●       August 23: Wonka (8:11 p.m.)

“Movies in the Park are an excellent way to spend time with your family outside. Our first show, Shrek, kicked off the Memorial Day weekend and we were thrilled with the attendance and the vibe,” said Michelle Graves, Assistant Parks and Community Services Director for the City of St. George. “It’s exciting to see the community come together to see these films under the stars.”

For a more hands-on event that takes place earlier in the day, Artie the Art Bus, a walk-through miniature Art Museum on wheels, makes appearances at 17 different City of St. George parks. Artie provides free art lessons and projects for our youth for 90 minutes at a time on most Mondays and Fridays this summer.

In addition to the park appearances, Artie can be toured every Wednesday at Historic Town Square. Each stop will begin at 11 a.m.
