4th of July parade to be pushed forward to Friday, July 2nd to lessen crowds

PARK CITY, Utah. — On May 27, the Park City Council held a public meeting to discuss a variety of the town’s issues. The hot topic of the night, however, was whether to move the annual 4th of July celebrations to July 2. The parade is to be pushed forward to Friday, July 2 to lessen crowds. While the fireworks will take place on July 4th.

Park City’s tradition of holding a Fourth of July parade on Historic Main Street, followed by a cookout at City Park, topped off with a fireworks show at Park City Mountain Resort is considered by some residents to be sacred. During the city council meeting, one resident exclaimed, “Ridiculous! The fourth is a sacred date. Hello!”. While another individual stated, “Summit County has done a fantastic job vaccinating. Whom exactly are you trying to keep safe? People who choose to not get vaccinated? Please stop the nannying.”

“4th on the 4th. This over-cautiousness on outdoor activities is foolish. To celebrate America’s freedom by succumbing to freedom-robbing regulations is insane.”
