New hours for summer on Temple Square

New summer hours to accommodate increase in visitors on Temple Square are now in effect. Until Labor Day, Sept. 3, Temple Square will be opened from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

Complimentary tours begin every 10 minutes. A 30-minute organ recital is performed in the Tabernacle at noon and 4 p.m., Mondays through Fridays and at 4 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays.More than 1 million visitors have come to the Square since January, said public relations director Delbert Warner. That number is an 8 percent increase over last year's figure.

"We should have about 2 million visitors this summer," Warner calculated.
