ST. GEORGE – Instead of a New Year’s Eve party, St. George City has put a pause on the festivities until Jan. 10, 2012, when a seven-day-long celebration marking the city’s 150-year birthday will begin.

A plethora of performances and activities will be taking place in downtown St. George, Dixie State College and the Dixie Center during the week-long events called St. George Heritage Days. All events will be free to the public.

People can find a detailed list of Heritage Days activities at the St. George City website.
