LDS Conference Brings Crowds To Salt Lake City
LDS General Conference, which runs Saturday and Sunday this weekend. It brings thousands of people to Temple Square and the Conference Center in downtown Salt Lake City.
The semi-annual conference is a major event and will cause traffic congestion in the downtown area. Parking will be difficult to find. Public transportation will run on an expanded schedule to help shuttle people into and out of the downtown area.
Three sessions will be held on Saturday, beginning at 10 am, 2 pm and 6 pm. Two sessions will be held on Sunday, beginning at 10 am and 2 pm. Sessions run for 2 hours.
Members of the public are invited to attend. Since seats are in high demand, a free ticket system has been implemented and tickets are hard to come by.
Conference sessions are held in the Conference Center, across from Temple Square. Sound from the sessions is piped to Temple Square where it can be heard all around the grounds. People who cannot get tickets to get into the Conference Center often listen to the services while enjoying the beautiful spring gardens at Temple Square.
Most sessions are broadcast on local TV and the Sunday morning session is broadcast on many stations around the U.S. and across the world.
