Fourth of July celebrations kick-off next week
From Patriotic Favorites played by the Utah Symphony and Opera’s Deer Valley Music Festival to Oakley’s Fourth of July Celebration and Rodeo, Summit County will offer a myriad of unique celebrations for Independence Day.
Park City’s traditional Independence Day Celebration is an all-day activity which begins with breakfast at City Park and continues with a 5K run/walk, a mid-morning parade down Main St. followed by a picnic, free live entertainment and games for children at City Park, the annual doubles volleyball tournament and a fireworks display at dusk.
This year’s theme for Park City’s parade is "Happy Birthday USA." The parade begins at 11 a.m.
