Fourth of July volunteers needed.

Park City’s traditional Independence Day Celebration is an all-day event which begins with breakfast at City Park from 7-10 a.m. and a 5K run/walk at Cole Sport at 8 a.m., a mid-morning parade and Air Force flyover on Main St. beginning at 11 a.m., followed by a picnic, free live entertainment and games for children at City Park from noon to 4 p.m., an annual doubles volleyball tournament, and a fireworks display at dusk.

This year’s theme for Park City’s parade is "Happy Birthday USA."

The Park City Ambassadors, the Park City Chamber/Bureau’s volunteer arm, who has worked to organize this daylong holiday celebration, needs additional volunteers to support the various activities on Wednesday, July 4.

Recommended Stories For You

The Park City History Book Club will host author and historian Richard Bushman on Tuesday, July 10 for a discussion of his book "Believing History: Latter-Day Saint Essays." Bushman is professor emeritus at Colombia University, a pre-eminent historian of the Mormon religion, and was the featured speaker at last year’s Park City Literary festival. Bushman’s "Latter Day Saint Essays," written while he was teaching at Brigham Young University, takes on the accuracy of what we call "history" in general, his own Mormon faith, and the arguments of skeptics about Mormon history and religion. Copies of his books are available at area bookstores and libraries.

Whether or not you have read Bushman’s book, join the discussion Tuesday, July 10, at 4 p.m. for the club’s presentation and discussion at the Park City Library, 1255 Park Ave., (435) 615-5600.
