Another big weekend is in store for biking enthusiasts in Park City. The Tour of Utah Stage 5 and Stage 6 will be racing through town this Saturday (August 11) and Sunday (August 12). This pro road bicycling race began in 2004 and takes riders over Utahs mountain climbs and diverse terrain for six grueling days. This year, six professional teams will be among the seventeen teams participating in the event. Called Americas Toughest Stage Race due to the altitude and heat factors, it begins in Ogden on the first day and ends in Park City on the final day. It is a true test of rider endurance.
The Summit County Fair, which begins on August 4th and runs through August 11th, celebrates the end of summer for our locals. This year, the fair is celebrating its 100th year. A yearly highlight is the arrival of the PRCA Pro Rodeo for the final two days, August 10th and 11th. The rodeo begins at 8:00 pm and takes place at the Summit County Fairgrounds, 202 E. Park in Coalville. Bring the family, check out the livestock and all the other fun activities and stay for the rodeo to watch the cowboys flying high!
