    Dancing? Did I read that right? In St. George? Must have been a typo as the local cops will shut this right down if there is dancing. It’s happened before.

      What’s wrong with a little Square Dancing? Line the pockets of the code endorsement cop, forfeit 15% of the gate receipts and let them dos -I- doe.

    I’m glad the city is allowing this event. It’s about time something fun that includes music AND dancing was permitted. There’s even a beer garden!!! The only drawback I see is “family friendly.” Isn’t there anywhere in this county an adult can go to escape being around kids and just be an adult?
