Park City to Light Up the Night with Annual Electric Parade

Park City, UT – Historic Park City is seeking participants for its annual Electric Parade scheduled for November 28. Participants are invited to light up their vehicles in this Utah ski town, turn up the volume to holiday music and join the festivities as spectators take to Park City’s Main Street for a colorful glow of holiday cheer.

$500 in cash prizes will be awarded in four categories, awarded by a panel of local judges. There is no entry fee to enter the Electric Parade.

Saturday, November 28, Small Business Saturday, is the perfect day to launch the Holiday season in Historic Park City,” said Alison Butz, Executive Director of the Historic Park City Alliance (HPCA). “The Electric Parade will immediately follow the lighting of the official Town Christmas Tree in Miners Park and the lighting of the Main Street lights. We’ve seen increased attendance the last few years. We’d love to see float participation grow this year.”
