What to do in Park City this weekend: Halloween events for the kids — and adults
Halloween falling on a Wednesday this year leaves this coming weekend an ideal opportunity to start the holiday early with Saturday activities and movies for all ages. Wednesday sees the traditional trick-or-treating on Main Street, as well as other activities for kids aside from (or in addition to) your neighborhood trick-or-treating. Additionally, the Kimball Art Center is hosting bag decorations all day Wednesday. For a full list of special events and weekly community events, visit our online calendar.
