Once again, the Huntsman World Senior Games are upon us! Since their inception in 1987, the Games have been a world-class showcase of active-adult competition and sport, all centered in our beautiful St. George.
The 2017 Huntsman World Senior Games are taking place from October 9 – 21, 2017 at multiple venues throughout the area. This year’s Opening Ceremonies will be held Tuesday, October 10 (TONIGHT!) in the Legend Solar Stadium on the campus of Dixie State University. Athletes, family and friends of the Games are all encouraged to attend and admission is free to the public. For those unable to attend, the Opening Ceremonies will also be live-streamed by the Community Education Channel at https://youtu.be/v9FIBmb41Zo.
