ZION NATIONAL PARK, Utah — Zion National Park is celebrating their 100th birthday Tuesday.

Local musicians and poets will perform at the park Tuesday, and there will also be an exclusive pre-screening of the new feature-length film “Zion Forever.”

Tuesday’s celebration is free and open to the public and begins at 7:30 p.m., however tickets are required and can be claimed online through the DSU box office website, or in person at 325 South and 700 East in St. George.
