Life-size snow globes and electric light parade return to Main Street for the holidays
Nine life-size snow globes were installed this weekend along Park City’s Main St., kicking off the holiday season.
The installations, which are six feet tall and include motion sensitive blowing snow, have returned for a second year. Historic Park City Alliance Director Ginger Wicks says the HPCA purchased the globes last year as a way to bring locals to Main St.
A downloadable snow globe stroll map is online at historicparkcityutah.com. The globes span the street from the Town Lift up to the Wasatch Brew Pub.
“You can see where they're all located.” Wicks said. “And each globe has a QR code on it, which you can scan and enter to win a variety of gift certificates from merchants on Main Street.”
The nine globes are all different and have been updated from last year’s globes.
“They highlight different activities or themes from Park City,” Wicks said. “They all have a unique little inspirational message in them. And as you approach them, they all have motion sensors, and they'll come alive as you approach them.”
The snow globes will remain up until January 5th. For residents with important letters to send, Santa’s mailbox has also been set up next to the snow globe located at the corner of Heber Avenue and Main St. Letters to Santa can be dropped off until December 24th.
Wicks says they’re still accepting applications to participate in the Electric Light Parade happening on Main St. Saturday, December 4th at 6 p.m. Motorized vehicles need to be decorated with lights to join in. The Electric Light Parade had to be cancelled last year and Wicks says they’re looking forward to bringing it back...
“We have had several entries submitted so that's exciting,” Wick said. “But it's a great kickoff to the holiday light season here in Park. City. I think this is a local's favorite event as well. And if you are interested in participating you again you can visit our website Historic Park City Utah.com and enter the parade. The top three entries do receive a cash award. And we have a judge’s panel that will be at the No Name balcony judging the floats as they come by.”
