Take a look at what is going on around Park City for this year’s Labor Day Weekend.
When you come visit Park City for Labor Day you will be making it just in time for one of our exclusive events that only happens here. Park City has an incredible history of mining that brought our initial settlers to the mountain. Each year Park City celebrates this heritage with our annual Miners Day and its related activities.
Come take a look into our rich history and enjoy a variety of events taking place on Monday, September 4th. The festivities begin at 7:30 am for the Miners Day Breakfast over at City Park. Enjoy freshly prepared food with locals and visitors all around you. Like any other city-wide celebration, Miners Day also includes a 5K run. Enjoy this short run at City Park where a fundraiser will take place to help local animal shelters. All runners will receive a goody bag at the end along with a medal. Registration is open for the race and is required before you can participate.
Immediately following the run make your way to Downtown Park City for the Running of the Balls. This wildly popular event has over 10,000 balls running down the street in a barricaded area. Proceeds from the ball purchases are also donated with prizes also available. Next up on the agenda is the Miners Day Parade where you will find incredible floats walking down the street. After the Running of the Balls and Miners Day Parade food trucks will be stationed back at City Park. Enjoy the beer garden where the adults can enjoy an adult beverage or two after all of the festivities. Live music and kids’ games will also be available in the park for this all-ages event. Don’t miss out on Miners Day this year in Park City!
