Entertainment & Creativity

The people of Page worked hard. They also liked to play hard! Swimming at the new pool and playing the new golf course were welcome distractions. Baseball games became endurance contests on a windswept, sandy field. Basketball games were also played in the sand, along trailer-lined streets.

Living in early Page meant no television, poor radio reception, and not much to do, so the people made their own entertainment. Dances, card games, and movies were attended with enthusiasm. Page also served as a backdrop for some memorable Hollywood moments including the filming of “The Greatest Story Ever Told” in 1962. Many early Page residents also served as ‘extras’ in the filming of movies, television shows and commercials.
