Santa Arrives to Park City via the Town Lift

Santa (santa-hero)

Around the world, Christmas is celebrated through many diverse and cherished traditions. If you are anywhere near Park City on Saturday, December 15th you want to be at the Town Lift Plaza off of Park City’s historic Main Street to experience the tradition of Santa’s big arrival on the Town Lift.  A few years ago, while on vacation to Park City, our family was introduced to this magical event where the Jolly Old Elf himself, along with his eight reindeer, descends from the top of a mountain on a cleverly lit ski lift that resembles a sleigh. Below is a video we shot from that magical night!

Now as locals living in our new home state of Utah, my kids are excited to continue this tradition. Santa’s entrance has all the makings of a successful event--music, free hot chocolate and cookies, lots of excited kids and all kinds of merriment.

Saturday, December 15th evening schedule is as follows:

6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. – Hot chocolate & cookies at Town Lift Plaza

6:15 p.m. – Santa arrives via Town Lift

6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. – Pictures with Santa by Sharpshooters Photography

Come early to get a free parking in the Town Bridge Underground Parking and on Main Street and enjoy some delicious food at any of the many restaurants nearby.  This year, through trial and error, we will spend the day snowboarding at Park City Mountain Resort then head to The Bridge Café and Grill for some great Brazilian food, which happens to be conveniently located in the same plaza as Santa and his sleigh. Be prepared to stay a while by dressing warmly. 

If you miss Santa on the 15th, you can see him skiing around Park City Mountain Resort on December 24th before he marshalls the Annual Torchlight Parade.
