It’s Sundance Festival Party Time

It’s party time in Park City. The Sundance Film Festival begins Thursday and it always brings celebrities, fans and countless parties to Utah’s mountains.

The festival runs Jan 19-29. The latest weather report calls for snow off and on through the rest of this week. Skiing will be great but it may be tricky getting around town to festival events. Support crews will work double time keeping roads open and sidewalks clear. Participants are encouraged to use public transportation as much as possible, and to be patient. The best parking may be over at Deer Valley, where shuttles will take you to the events.

Crowds and traffic problems are an expected part of the festivities. Despite the congestion and weather, events take place with amazingly few problems. People are cooperative and even jovial. Fans are always on their best behavior, hoping they may get to help pull a glamorous actress out of a snow bank.

Is it too late to get tickets? No, there are still tickets available to some screenings. And you may even be able to see sold out shows if you get into the wait list line – there are almost always a few last minute openings.

Many festival screenings and events will be held in Salt Lake City and the surrounding area. It is usually easier to get in on the Salt Lake action, and you don’t have to drive up the mountain.

Check the Sundance website for more details.
