Park City 4th of July Parade and Celebration 2023
If you are coming to Park City this summer to enjoy a lively 4th of July celebration, then you will be satisfied with this year’s 4th of July Parade and Celebration. Each year the Historic Park City Alliance puts on an incredible event that is perfect for individuals of all ages. The 4th of July Celebration is an all day affair that starts in the morning and does not end until it is dark outside. Start your 4th of July Celebration at City Park where you can enjoy a pancake breakfast. This has been a city staple for years and is always a favorite for the community.
Make sure to show up hungry as there will be plenty to go around. After you have had your fair share of pancakes you can prepare for the 5K Fun Run starting at 8:00 am. This race is a great way to kick start your 4th of July as there will be plenty of runners in their patriotic attire or in full costume. The 5K race is perfect for individuals of all ages who wish to walk or run.
Next up on the agenda is the 4th of July Parade starting at 11:00 am. This parade is huge and goes down Main Street in Downtown Park City. You will see plenty of historic vehicles, patriotic, floats and much more on display in this local favorite. The parade is always a major attraction so make sure you find a great viewing area along the route well before it begins. The parade starts at the top of Main Street before it heads down and turns left onto 9th Street and past the Town Lift.
The free public transit is a great way to get to Main Street before the parade as many of the usual parking spaces will be closed or taken up. Stick around Main Street after the parade has ended to browse the shops or find somewhere to enjoy lunch at a local restaurant. Finally, the event will run for the remainder of the day over at City Park starting at noon. Here visitors will be able to enjoy live music and refreshments along with a volleyball tournament, rugby games, and children’s activities. You have never seen so many activities offered on a 4th of July Celebration before. Don’t miss out on all the fun here in Park City!
4th of July Drone Show
2023 will be a little different this year here in Park City than in year’s past as the Park City Council has approved a drone show to replace a typical fireworks celebration. Park City has been at risk of forest fire over the past few summers making traditional fireworks a hazard for wildlife. While we will not offer a traditional fireworks celebration you can see a stunning drone show that will provide an equally entertaining option. This drone show will take place after the daily festivities have ended. Expect to see a stunning performance in the night sky complete with patriotic colors, displays, and much more. Drone shows are a new way to enjoy a nightly 4th of July celebration to ensure the tradition of fireworks continues in some capacity. Join us for this new and exciting option here in Park City!
