All sorts of fun hits the Historic Park City District this month. Most of the events are free to the public and open to all ages so bundle up and get your butts out. My favorite decision of all year is FREE PARKING on Main Street. Now why we don’t have this all year round is beyond me but take advantage of the ‘deal’ through December 16.
Dec. 3-4 The festivities kick off with The Silly Holiday Bazaar, Park City High School. One hundred unique vendors selling jewelry, clothing, accessories, gourmet foods, and more.Take photos with Silly Santa, holiday kids’ activities, live acoustic holiday music.
Dec.4 Also, this weekend The Nutcracker Tea Party, at the Hearth Club at Promontory. Tea treats and a holiday ornament are included.
Dec. 10 The following weekend support the Kimball Art Center (and party down) at one of the new hippest holiday bashes in Park City. The 2nd Annual Charity Lift will be in the Grand Summit Ballroom. Tickets are $60. The food and drink last year was worth the price of admission. And you get to see some kick-ass ‘extreme’ art auctions to boot.
December 15-23 Jesus Christ Superstar plays at the Egyptian Theatre. The super hip play is
loosely based on the last week of Jesus’ life. The rock opera is written by Andrew Lloyd Webber with lyrics by Tim Rice. Ted Neeley returns to the role he made famous in the 1973 major motion picture.
December 17 Santa lands at the Town Lift Plaza …after he skis free at Canyons
December 21 is the 2nd annual Winter Solstice Electric Light Parade
Dec. 23 & 25 Santa skis Canyons. He hits
Deer Valley Dec. 24., and then joins PCMR’s ski instructors for their torchlight parade & Christmas Eve celebration Dec. 24.
December 24-25 My favorite “soundtrack” musician performs his annual concert at the Egyptian Theater: Kurt Bestor – One Silent Night. I’ll be volunteering for that one, so come say hi!
December 30 The final PC Gallery Stroll of the year, 6-9pm
