It wasn't too long ago when Labor Day weekend signaled the true end of summer in Park City with the Miners’ Day celebrations being the last real event until the ski season. In recent years, our mountain resort town has evolved into a year-round mecca for activities and events. We are seeing the shortening of the fall shoulder season with the Park Silly Sunday Market continuing into summer and a host of new offerings to keep locals and visitors entertained. The weekend of September 13 is shaping up to be no exception with the annual Autumn Aloft hot air balloon festival and the inaugural Park City Songwriter Festival. The hills will come alive with music, vibrant balloons, and splendid fall colors.
