Halloween is a tricky holiday for mountain town living. When October 31st comes around, good weather is not guaranteed. We have seen sunny, blue-sky, 80-degree days and freezing, blowing snowstorms. Starting trick-or-treat activities early in the day can be valuable, especially in colder years. Once the sun sets over the ridgeline, it can get quite cold quickly.
A long-time local's favorite tradition is the annual Halloween celebration on Park City's historic Main Street. Closed for pedestrian traffic only from 3 pm to 6 pm, this is a great way to get a start on the trick-or-treat fun before dark. Dressed-up kids, parents, and even dogs travel up to Main Street, where most shops and merchants are kind enough to host PC residents and hand out bag after bag of candy and treats. What a fun event for the kids and an excellent opportunity for parents to run into old friends.
Driving to the event and finding parking is nearly impossible, so it is best to carpool, walk, ride bikes, or take the free Park City bus. Main Street and Heber Avenue roads will be closed at 2 pm for the 3 pm event start. Parking is $15/flat rate between 2:00 and 6:00 pm. Free parking is available at Richardson Flat, Park City Resort, and Deer Valley Resort. Additional free parking is available after 4 pm at Park City High School. While typically not allowed on Park City Transit and High Valley Transit buses, dogs are allowed on this special day.
