Scheduled for the first week in May, events kick off with the Grand Opening for the new Protosuchus life restoration. Additionally, we are introducing the public to the latest additions in the Dino Park which include a shade structure, embedded fossil bones that can be observed and touched, and new interactive areas supported in part by the Utah Arts and Museums, with funding from the State of Utah. These include a track-making area, replica dig box, and climb-in track box. The Grand Opening will be held May 5th at 5 PM and will include a Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting as well as refreshments in the new area. The public is invited and museum entry will be free that evening.

Lectures by our paleontologist at local schools will be highlighted during the week as well as fun things in the museum such as handouts, coloring pages, mazes, etc., for the children. On Saturday, May 10th, craft sessions will be held at 11 AM through 2 PM.

At the St. George branch of the Washington County Library, Dino Days will be featured with decorations and fun things to read about dinosaurs.

St. George Utah Ironman Race May 3, 2014

St. George Utah is the striking southwestern home of one of IRONMAN’s original full-distance races, now hosts one of the season’s earliest IRONMAN 70.3 races. The race is staged in and around the heart of St. George, with Zion National Park, the state’s most popular national park, only a short 45-minute drive away. The city’s downtown area offers great local fare, boutique shopping and plenty of parks—perfect for enjoying the sunny spring weather.

The swim is held a few miles away in pristine Sand Hollow Reservoir, where athletes are bused to the start line from the parking lot. The bike and run courses are two of the most challenging on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit, but what goes up must come down and some of the descents are just as epic. Both courses present spectacular views of downtown St. George, Snow Canyon and the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. The Snow Canyon climb is lined with motivational posters from the local tri club, helping to ease the difficulty of the physical task at hand.
