Celebrate Independence Day-The Park City Way

May the sun in his course visit no land more free, more happy, more lovely, than this our own country!  ~Daniel Webster

Park City 4th of July ParadeIndependence Day means many things to many people. For some, it is the day that one remembers our founding fathers and thanks them for all our freedoms. For others it is a time of rejoicing and celebrating being citizens of this great country that has been the beacon of hope to people around the world. Every 4th of July, cities, towns, and communities across the length and breadth of the United States celebrate Independence.

In Park City, Utah we start celebrating early with a firework display on July 3rd at the Canyons Resort with an evening of food, fun and live music in the Resort Village. Then on July the 4th, Independence Day will be celebrated with our typical hometown USA style with the Historic District being the venue for the annual 4th of July parade.

The whole day will offer a series of fun and exciting events. The excitement begins early in the morning at 7am with a Pancake Breakfast in City Park. This will be followed by Cole Sports 5K Fun Run at 8 am. Call (435) 649-4806 for specific details to participate in the run. 11 am is the time for the piece de la resistance of the day’s celebrations- the Park City 4th of July Parade. This year will see participation of over 70 floats, bands, gymnasts, and other groups including an Air Force Flyover. This parade really has that home town feel with its homemade floats and family group participation.

After the parade, there is still more to do. For those that seek entertainment and excitement there is a whole slew of celebrations between 12 noon and 4 pm in City Park. The Sunrise Rotary serves up lunch in the park. There are food booths, beer gardens, games, and children’s activities as well as live music to keep everyone happy and busy.

Located a short walk from City Park is Park City Mountain Resort, which hosts the annual firework display. The resort which stays open for extended hours (10 am and 9 pm) on July 4th affords you the opportunity to get the thrill of your life by taking a ride on Utah’s sole Alpine Coaster. Then again you could simply take the lift and find yourself facing hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails, or take the easy way down and ride one of the longest Alpine Slides in the world or zip down the Zipline. The resort offers various children’s rides for little ones to share in the fun.  At dark the sky lights up with the firework display.  Truly, where else would you rather be this 4th of July?
