Beginning at 3 p.m. on Halloween, Main Street Park City will be closed to vehicular traffic to allow for parents and their costumed cuties to visit local businesses for trick-or-treating, which goes until about 5:30 p.m.

The Howl-o-ween parade begins at 5 p.m in front of the Egyptian Theatre. Costumed canines seem to have outnumbered children in recent years, providing true insight to why Park City is affectionately dubbed "Bark City." Pet owners stop at nothing to create strikingly clever costumes to strut their mutts in, making for great photo opportunities.

Despite Halloween falling on a Monday this year, there is sure to be plenty of late night revelry in Historic Park City. Some of the locals' favorite bands and DJs typically play in various

Meisha Lawson, spokeswoman for the festival, describes the event “It’s something that's unexplainable when the balloons kind of start to float, you get this feeling inside of you that just brings everything miraculous about what hot air balloons are and just…you can’t help but smile and be delighted”.

Vail Resorts, a Colorado based management company, has recently purchased Powdr Corp.'s Park City Mountain Resort for $182 million. "Selling was the last thing we wanted to do, and while we believe the law around this issue should be changed, a protracted legal battle is not in line with our core value to be good stewards of the resort communities in which we operate," Powdr chief executive John Cumming said in a statement. "A sale was the only way to provide long-term certainty for PCMR employees and the Park City community."

In 2011 Powdr Corp. was a few days late renewing their lease for the resort with Talisker Land Holdings. The lease dated back to the 1970s and had Powdr Corp. paying only about $150,000 a year for Park City Mountain
