Park City has a reputation for being a particularly fervent festival town, and Halloween is definitely no exception. Historic Park City will host a spectacular afternoon of fun and safe festivities on October 31st. Come to Main Street for costumes, parades, and all the spooky in betweens. There will be tons to do and see on the last day of the month, and you won’t want to miss it!
The afternoon kicks off with trick-or-treating at local participating shops that line Historic Main Street. Following the family festivities is the famous Howl-o-ween Dog Parade of 2019. Local, leashed pooches don their spookiest outfits and costumes to parade down the street. This event has gained national pup-ularity and every year the participants’ costumes seem to get more clever and Insta-worthy.
Below is the schedule of events:
3:00-5:00 p.m. Trick-or-Treating: Kids head to Main Street for spooktacular trick-or-treating to show off their costumes and score candy from participating merchants. By all means, parents are allowed to snag some candy along the way, too. In fact, we encourage it.
5:00 p.m. Dog Parade on Lower Main Street: Leashed, costumed dogs and their owners will meet below the Lower Main Street Pedestrian bridge at 4:45 p.m. The parade will begin at 5:00 p.m., marching their way to Heber Avenue.
Make sure you don’t get tricked by transportation:
- Main Street will be closed to traffic beginning at 2 p.m.
- Public transit is strongly encouraged (we hear that the City is considering allowing pets on buses for this one day only, but stay tuned to local media like KPCW and the Park Record to confirm whether that will be the case).
- Walk or bike, weather permitting!
- Complimentary parking is available at Deer Valley Resort, Park City Mountain, and the Park City School District from where free public transit to Main Street is offered.
- Parking will be $10 in the China Bridge parking structure.
If you’re not ready to turn in after the festivities, keep the party going at one of Park City’s popular bars or restaurants. Many places are known for Halloween traditions, including special drinks, decorations, and costume contests. Check out The Cabin, No Name Saloon, The Spur Bar and Grill, and Downstairs to keep the ball rolling.
