Cedar City Preps For Upcoming Holiday Celebrations
With the stunning displays of colors on the mountains, the shortening of daylight and the cooling of temperatures, preparations are underway in Cedar City for upcoming fall and winter holiday celebrations.
Downtown Trick or Treating
The annual Hocus Focus Trick of Treat event is set for Historic Downtown Cedar City on Saturday, October 22nd. The annual event is a favorite among members of the community and downtown business owners. Children are invited with their families to trick or treat while exploring and supporting local businesses in Cedar City. This year, the Delta Psi Omega sorority of Southern Utah University is helping with the promotion and organization of the event, and are hoping to participate on an annual basis. The event will run from 3:00pm to 6:00pm and everyone of all ages are invited to join in.
