The city of St. George is celebrating its 158th birthday with root beer floats and many freebies around town!

Heritage Day includes several freebies, including all-day free admission to the Sand Hollow Aquatic Center, St. George Recreation Center, St. George Art Museum and free rides all day on SunTran buses as well as the Thunder Junction train.

Mayor Jon Pike and members of the City Council will commemorate the city’s birthday by preparing free root beer floats and cookies during the Heritage Day celebration at the Social Hall Parlor (47 East 200 North) from noon to 2 p.m.

What promises to be a day filled with fun and fellowship stands in contrast to the country’s status Jan. 17, 1862. The United States was a nation divided, nine months into what would be a four-year Civil War. Less than 15 years earlier, the first settlers from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints had first entered the Salt Lake Valley. A group later ventured 300 miles to the south, where it founded St. George — now home to approximately 90,000 residents.
