We all look forward to Christmas as that season of the year when we see colorful lights twinkling across river fronts or even along the streets. The number and style of concerts in Park City during Christmas are such that they will make it one memorable experience. The activities at this time of the year usually make Park City become some sort of romantic movie town with magical looking movie scenes. The whole town has a plethora of Christmas music echoes with delicious smells of coffee and meat pies wafting through the air. What better thing will your kids want than to see horse drawn carriages and if possible take a ride in one of them?
As tradition is, the weekend before thanksgiving there is usually a celebratory mood engulfing the whole city which remains in an entertainment mood with a number of kids’ activities and fireworks, art as well as holiday lights; the celebration continues to crescendo with the climax being the Christmas festival of lights.
