Yes, the “Running of the Balls” is a favorite event here in Park City. What fun it is to be a part of the crowd on Park City’s historic Main Street each Miners’ Day for the Running of the Balls.
Fun and funky, the annual Park City Miner’s Day parade down historic Main Street attracts marching bands and community floats as Park City celebrates its mining heritage
Miner’s Day celebrates Park City’s mining heritage. Starting in the 19th century and continuing until just a few decades ago, Park City was an ore rich silver mining town. One of the highlights of the annual Miner’s Day celebration is the Mucking and Drilling competition. Competitors come from around the mountain west to compete in timed events that simulate the demanding work done in Park City’s silver mines.
