It doesn’t matter who you are, there’s a folksy magic in July 4th that sweeps everyone off their feet. Well, this year, prepare for an Independence Day that will go one step further, and knock your socks clean off! 2019 4th of July in Park City celebrations are going to be wholly traditional and full of fun for your entire family, young and old alike.
Power up for a long day of merrymaking with a delicious pancake breakfast at 7am down at City Park. Then proceed to immediately work off those calories by tying your shoelaces and participating in the Cole Sport 5K Fun Run. The race starts at 8am, so work up some appetite and excitement for the day ahead, while also benefitting the Park City Ski Team, the town’s Olympic hopefuls!
Don’t miss the traditional 4th of July in Park City Parade down Main Street! This starts right at 11am, and you’ll want to get there early to cop those front row seats. (Parking is limited, so it’s better to bike or walk to this historic area.) Everyone can enjoy the excitement of a loud and proud parade marching down the street, spilling over with happy families and spectators.
Head on back to City Park at noon for a barbecue lunch and other refreshments, and perhaps watch the volleyball tournament or one of the scheduled rugby games! Live music will play all day, and kids will have lots of activities to take part in too. As dusk falls, ready yourself for the city fireworks show, the finale that brings an epic day to a fantastic end.
For a slightly different way to celebrate, think of hitting up the Oakley Rodeo, located close to Park City at the Oakley Recreation Center. They put on a full four-day event, stretching Independence Day into Independence Week, from July 3rd to July 6th. You can watch fireworks each evening at 8pm here, after a rip-roarin’ rodeo show. July 4th even includes the Junior Rodeo, in case any of the kids want to try their hand at this rural past time!
