MINERS’ DAY CELEBRATIONS SCALED BACK FOR 2020
Annual parade, mining competition and city park picnic will not be held
Park City’s annual celebration of its mining heritage will take on a different look this year, out of caution for COVID-19. The Park City Rotary Club will be scaling the event back this September for the 125th running of Park City Miners’ Day.
The event’s primary activities, the Miners’ Day Parade down historic Main Street, the family fun daylong celebration in City Park and the Mucking and Drilling mining contest, will not be held this year. Miners’ Day had been scheduled for Monday, September 7. A virtual edition of the Running of the Balls, without spectators, will be held. Running of the Balls is a vital support tool for local nonprofits.
The first Miners’ Day was held in June, 1896 when a crowd of 450 Western Federation of Miners walked down from the union headquarters at the top of Park City’s main street in what is thought to be the first Miners Union Parade.
“It’s important for us to put community health over festivities this year,” said Park City Rotary Club President Corrie Forsling. “It’s just a one year pause of a celebration that began over a century ago. But, most importantly, we still need to use Miners’ Day as an opportunity to support our local nonprofits.”
The club will conduct a modified format Running of the Balls, a vital event in raising money for the club, which, in turn, goes to support local nonprofit causes in the community. The event will be produced virtually with a goal of maintaining that annual support.
“Miners’ Day is about having fun in our community,” added Forsling. “But it is also an opportunity to raise money to support our community’s causes. The money our club raises at Miners’ Day was important this spring when we were able to provide substantial support to the Park City Community Foundation’s Community Response Fund.”
The Park City Rotary Club will also recognize its Citizens of the Year. Each year the club honors a professional and volunteer citizen of the year for their contributions to the community. While they will not be able to ride in the Miners’ Day parade, they will be honored by the Park City Rotary Club at a private presentation in Rotary Park.
The Miners’ Day celebration is one of many events put on pause this summer, including the Park Silly Sunday Market, July Fourth parade and the Park City Kimball Arts Festival. It is expected to return for a 126th year on Monday, September 6, 2021.
