Park City Electric ParadeMain Street Electric Parade
There’s nothing more magical than Park City’s Main Street all decked out in lights with snow flakes gently falling. We can’t promise what will happen with the weather, of course, but we’re sure you’ll love the Winter Electric Parade with its dazzling lit up vehicles. Santa Claus will be making his first appearance in town this year, strolling Main Street, from 4 to 6 p.m. and at 5:30 p.m. the Christmas Tree in Miner’s Park and the rest of the lights will go on, officially kicking off the holiday season. The parade begins at 6 p.m., starting from the Miner’s Hospital.

Small Business Saturday
If you’re one of the people who loves taking advantage of the post-Thanksgiving sales, we recommend you give some love to local businesses. Park City strives to keep the shopping scene largely free of chain stores and keep our town unique. Browse Main Street’s trendy boutiques and pick up some stylish new looks for winter at Mary Jane’s, Flight Boutique, or Olive & Tweed.

Thanksgiving is a family holiday, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend the entire time with the kids. Park City has a robust, eclectic nightlife that’s hopping all year round. Main Street is packed with live music and local brews, so go check it out!
