What Makes Park City Real Estate Valuable? Park City Miner’s Day Celebration
The upcoming Labor Day weekend traditionally marks the end of summer, and here in Park City, Utah we celebrate it a bit differently. Park City, UT was founded as a mining town rich in silver. The boom here continued until the government went away from the idea of backing the US Dollar with silver; and the relative collapse of silver prices. This made way for the “silver that is mined today” represented by tourism and outdoor activities: skiing, snowboarding, golfing, hiking, biking, fishing, etc. But more than these activities, it is the funky nature of the town and community that make people want to own a vacation home or live here permanently. Things like the upcoming Miner’s Day celebration add value and lifestyle differences to our town.
Miner’s Day in Park City is a full day of celebrations:
- The day starts with a pancake breakfast in City Park at 7:00 am (presented by St Mary’s Catholic Church)
- The Funky 5K Fun Run starts at 8:30 – perfect to work off those pancakes (sponsored by Arts-Kids go http://www.arts-kids.org/events-funky-5k.html to register)
