Things to do in Park City: Homecoming, Harvest Fest and Thriller!
The weather has decidedly turned into autumn, and the events reflect the arrival of the fall season with Park City’s homecoming football game, the annual Harvest Fest and Thriller! at the Egyptian Theatre.
Additionally, while the aspen trees stay yellow, this weekend could be the best (and maybe last) opportunity to take in the foliage with a hike or drive. For a full list of special events and weekly community events, visit our online calendar.
