Sundance Brings Crowds To Park City
The annual Sundance Film Festival begins tomorrow. It is headquartered in Park City and also has many activities in Salt Lake City and surrounding communities. It runs through Jan 29.
Park City is a busy town during the festival. Traffic is often congested or totally clogged on roads into the downtown area. Snow is expected during the next few days and that will add to snarls. People are encouraged to take mass transit buses around town.
Hotels in Park City book out weeks before the festival begins but excellent lodging is always available in Salt Lake City.
A-list celebs will be seen at screenings, parties and sometimes in shops and on the streets. Many people come to the festival hoping to catch a glimpse of a star or two.
The news media will be all over town, along with the paparazzi. Stories and photos from the festival will be published around the world. Below we offer links to a few interesting preview articles.
