ST. GEORGE — The town’s annual celebration on Saturday, July 17 on the peninsula returned and with it the 5-kilometer road race, children’s fun run and popular cornhole tournament.

Along with sponsoring the Marshall Point 5-kilometer, or “Lighthouse Loop,” the St. George Parks and Recreation also sponsored the cornhole tourney that was held later in the day on the town’s big ball field.

Proceeds from the race go to the recreation boosters to support youth recreation opportunities, director Ben Vail said.

Under an overcast sky, and with temperatures in the low-70s, nearly 50 runners, and walkers, turned out for the loop to the Marshall Point Lighthouse.
