WHAT IS RUNNING OF THE BALLS?  You “buy” a ball for $5 or 5 balls for $20. When the balls are released from the top of Main Street (this is cool to watch and happens at 10:45am) they are tracked down their route and the first ball through the shute at the bottom of the will wins it’s owner a valuable prize such as ski passes, lodging vouchers or one of many other great donated prizes. This much anticipated event is sponsored by the Park City Rotarians and benefits other local non-profits via grants.  Buy a “Ball” and enjoy the fun… it’s for a great cause!
