St. George Parade of Homes has Shuttle Service

St George Parade of Homes

WASHINGTON COUNTY – The St. George Area 22nd Annual Parade of Homes begins tomorrow.  The City of St. George and St. George Shuttle have collaborated to provide Tour Coach service to Paraders, in zones reaching all of the homes. Here’s what you need to know:

Tour Coaches (each seating 25-30 people) will run three times a day on Friday – Monday, Feb. 17-20, and again on Friday – Sunday, Feb. 24-26, departing at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. from the former St. George Municipal Airport 
located at 620 S. Airport Rd., in St. George.

The shuttle tickets cost $25 and are good for any days of the Parade that the service runs.

Service areas are divided into five zones, each taking about three hours to cover. Thus, logistically, two zones may be covered in a day.

Shuttle Tickets may be purchased and booked directly on the St. George Shuttle website, by telephone to St. George Shuttle at 435-628-8320, by visiting the St. George Shuttle office at 790 S Bluff St., St. George, or at the point of departure at the old airport.  They may also be purchased at the Red Cliffs Mall and any Lin’s Grocery store, where Parade Tickets are being sold.

Seating is subject to availability, so parading shuttlers are urged to purchase tickets and book their zones early and to arrive at least 15 minutes early of departure time.

Those with children 5 and younger must provide their own car seat / booster seat to ride, the seats may be left on the tour bus while visiting the homes.

Parade tickets cost $12.50 and go on sale this evening at the Red Cliffs Mall and Lin’s markets.  They can also be purchased anytime today and following at the St. George Shuttle office on Bluff Street.  Cost of parade tickets is separate from cost of the Shuttle’s coach tour service for the Parade.

The Dogfather will be vending hot dogs, chips and drinks at the tour’s point of departure at the old airport. Thus, shuttling paraders can grab a meal as they depart or shift coaches for a second zone.  Restrooms will also be available there.

St George LDS Temple

St. George LDS Temple

St. George LDS Temple

Located only four blocks away, the Best Western Coral Hills is the closets hotel to the Saint George Utah Temple.  It is the oldest operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.   The St. George Utah Temple is the only temple completed during Brigham Young’s 30-year tenure as president of the Church. Dedication was 6–8 April 1877 by Daniel H. Wells. Rededication was 11–12 November 1975 by Spencer W. Kimball.

The temple grounds are open to the public and they are welcome to enjoy the calming atmosphere.  Also on the same temple block are two visitors’ centers.   Admission to the temple visitor’s centers is free.  The main visitor center provides a short guided tour which provides the opportunity to learn about the church’s teachings.  The second visitors’ center focuses on the history and construction of the St George Temple.

Entrance to the temple itself is open only to members in good standing.  Temples are the most sacred of all buildings for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

For church members staying with the Best Western Coral Hills, schedules for the St. George Temple are available at the front desk.  In limited instances shuttle service is available.
