Are you looking for something fun to do on July 4? Pack up your car and kids and head up to Park City for a weekend full of fun.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy a live concert in the cool mountain air. Take in the excitement of Park City’s Fourth of July parade along historic Main Street. But that’s not all. You can join in on a 5K run, watch Rugby, see the rodeo, and eat a pancake breakfast.
Breakfast begins at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, July 4 in the City Park. The cost is $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for children.
Maybe you’ll need to save breakfast until later, as the 5K run begins at Cole Sport at 8:00 a.m. sharp, and you should pre-register for the race by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 3.
You’ll never run out of things to do after the race. Throughout the day (between 10:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.), you and your family will enjoy Rugby games, live music, the famous parade, and rodeos.
Park City kicks off its Main Street parade at 11:00 a.m., and you can observe seventy different floats that commemorate the resort’s rich history. After the parade, head for City Park where you’ll enjoy plenty of fun activities, including food, live music, beer gardens, games, and plenty of other activities for your children.
Don’t miss the fireworks at dusk from Park City Mountain Resort (PCMR). This year, the ski resort has extended its hours from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in order to give you more time to have fun. Zip down the mountain at breakneck speeds on the Alpine Coaster or fly through the air on the ZipRider. The lifts are open, so you can take a ride to the mountain and enjoy the view. PCMR has literally hundreds of miles of hiking/biking trails as well.
If you want to get an early start on the July 4 weekend, head to Canyons resort (located by Kimball Junction) to enjoy a weekend of live music, fireworks, and more fun. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Resort Village, and fireworks begin at 9:30 p.m. Here’s the best part: It’s all free!
Put on your cowboy hat and take a ride to Oakley for their 80th Annual rodeo where you can witness real cowboys, clowns, and bucking broncos.
In the spirit of July 4, you might want to take part in the sounds and humor of the Texas Tenors from America’s Got Talent. The Tenors offer a unique variety of patriotic songs, gospel, and good old country music.
Don’t miss out on the activities in Park City for America’s birthday. Be sure to take advantage of some great discounts offered by vacation rentals and lodging. It’s a great time of the year to celebrate in Park City.
