Historic Park City Announces Holiday Festivities

With more than 200 unique businesses featured in Park City’s Historic district, the Historic Park City Alliance (HPCA), gives guests a few more reasons to visit the vibrant downtown scene this season. The fall spectacle kicks off with the return of the Snow Globe Stroll beginning Wednesday, Nov. 17.

“With so much to celebrate this season, our local businesses are excited to be at the center of it all,” explains Ginger Wicks, Executive Director of the Historic Park City Alliance. “Our signature Snow Globe Stroll and annual Electric Light Parade, along with Small Business Saturday and our favorite holiday traditions are great ways to leisurely enjoy the brisk outdoors and all that our business district has to offer.”

Fall and holiday events scheduled on Park City’s Historic Main Street include:

Snow Globe Stroll
