Young boy disappears briefly on Main Street during the arts festival

The Park City Police Department responded to a few calls over the weekend that appeared to be related to the crowds in the city for the Park City Kimball Arts Festival, which brings some of the largest weekend crowds of the year to the city.

The police received complaints about noise and parking, which is typical for the arts festival weekend. Some of the cases that were reported to the police over the weekend that seem to have ties to the crowds who arrived for the arts festival include:
