The Park City 4th of July celebration has become a huge tradition in our beautiful area.  The city hosts a myriad of day long events, ranging from a pancake breakfast at the park to a fabulous fireworks display at dusk.

The old fashioned parade on Historic Main Street is not to be missed.  Marching bands, drill teams and funny floats make their way from the top of the street to City Park, where everyone enjoys live music, games for the kids and beer gardens for the grown-ups.

Many locals attend another area tradition — the rodeo!  Adding to the festivities, the Oakley Independence Day Rodeo is celebrating its 81st year and is a sanctioned PRCA event.  The rodeo sells out quickly so get your tickets early.

There are so many things to do in Park City and its environs and you can bookend the festivities with mountain views while hiking, biking and playing golf. Saddle up a horse and hit the trails with one of the many outfitters in the area. Or, you can also refresh yourself with a dip in one of the local reservoirs or a cool mountain lake.
