2012 Schedule of Events
Pancake Breakfast at City Park - Presented by St. Mary's Catholic Church
Funky 5-K - Presented by Arts-Kids
World Famous Running of the Balls, Main Street - Presented by Wells Fargo
RUNNING OF THE BALLS? The way it works is; you can "adopt" a ball for $5 or 5 balls for $20. When the balls are released at the top of Main Street they are tracked down their route and the first ball through the shute will win it's owner a valuable prize, such as airline tickets and many other great donated prizes. There will be over 10 other prizes awarded for close finishers. (Watch the video below to see how it works). This much anticipated event is sponsored by the Park City Rotarians and benefits other charity projects. Buy a "Ball" and enjoy the fun... it's for a great cause!
