2010 The Historic Park City Alliance (HPCA) is pleased to host a bag full of tricks and treats on and around Park City’s Main Street as Halloween approaches. Kids and adults are invited to take part in creative classes and ghoulish festivities in two weeks leading up to Halloween.

Park City’s annual Howl-o-Ween and Dog Parade returns once again, along with The Thriller Snow Dance.

“HPCA merchants are excited to be an important part of Park City’s Halloween festivities year after year,” said Alison Butz, Executive Director of the HMBA. “Halloween in Park City is truly a community event.
