Murray Filled With Holiday Happenings

Nov 06, 2014 12:57PM ● Published by City Journals Staff

Hundreds of residents turned out to visit Santa during the city’s Christmas tree lighting last year.

There’s a ton of great family fun planned around the city. The Murray Journal has tried to round up information on as many as we can below. Tear this page out and put it on your fridge so you don’t miss out on all the fun events.

THANKSGIVING
A Thanksgiving Celebration will be held at the L. Clark Cushing Heritage Center, 10 East 6150 South, on Wednesday, Nov. 19 with entertainment beginning at 11a.m. with the New Fiddlers, and a holiday meal at noon. Tickets are $6 and must be paid for in advance.

SANTA CLAUS 
Santa’s arrival at Fashion Place Mall is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 15 at 9 a.m. in the food court. 

Pet photos with Santa will be on Monday, Nov. 17 and 24, Dec. 1, 8 and 15.

CONCERTS
The Murray Symphony Sing-A-Along will be held on Saturday, Dec. 6 at 7:30 p.m. at Murray High School (5440 South State Street). Attendees are encouraged to bring a vocal score of the Messiah.  Admission is free, but food and clothing donations to give to The Road Home are suggested.  

“The Forgotten Carols” will be performed at 7:30 p.m., on Friday, Dec. 12 through Saturday, Dec. 20 in the Cottonwood High School auditorium, 5715 South 1300 East.  Written 23 years ago by Utah resident Michael McLean, the performance tells the nativity story, starring Broadway actress Katie Thompson as Connie Lou, a nurse who is too busy to celebrate Christmas. The holiday show will be performed with Murray high school choirs.

Horizon Elementary School’s annual bell choir concert will be held at the school auditorium, 5180 South 700 West on Wednesday, Dec. 10 at 9 a.m. and again at the Murray Library, 166 East 5300 South at 10 a.m. the same day.

The Heritage Center, 10 East 6150 South, is hosting a drive for used or new winter clothing. Murray residents are asked to bring coats, hats, blankets, sweaters, gloves, etc. to the center that will be donated to the overflow homeless shelter in Midvale. The facility has also partnered with high school students to fill backpacks for homeless youths.
