Festivals planned

The Park City Council recently granted event licenses, including two that are scheduled on Saturday, Oct. 7.

The Youth WinterSports Alliance received the go-ahead to hold what is being called the Fall Family Fest, which is scheduled at Quinn’s Junction sports complex. The organization plans to publicize winter-sports opportunities in the city, according to a report submitted to the City Council before the vote.

It is scheduled to last from noon until 6 p.m.

People will be able to sign up for sports played at the ice rink and demonstrations will be held at the rink, located at the complex. Also planned are a chili cook-off and pumpkin painting, among other activities.

The city expects 750 people will attend.

Also on Oct. 7, the ‘Showdown on Main Street’ is scheduled. The event will feature skateboarders racing through a slalom course on lower Main Street. About 100 people are expected to attend. The city plans to close a stretch of lower Main Street for the event, scheduled to run from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The Park City Recreation Department, meanwhile, received a license to hold a bicycle-jumping event at the city’s dirt-jump park. The three-hour event is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Oct. 14. The city expects 75 people to attend. The plans call for a jumping exhibition and contest and a DJ.

City Hall typically supports special events as a means to enliven the city and pump money into the economy.
