“Sunset on the Square has become a staple event in St. George drawing large crowds at each movie,” states Dawn McLain, Event Organizer. “When people ask me about Sunset on the Square, I always say, if you haven’t attended yet you really need to go, it’s so much more than just a movie. There’s a reason so many people come. Many of them have come to nearly every event since we first started. For me, I just love watching the smiles on the kids’ faces. I have literally had the opportunity to see so many of them grow up; it’s an amazing experience to be a part of.”
