Park Silly Market Passed The “Kid Test”

On Sundays in the summer, I look forward to going to lower Main Street in Park City for the “Park Silly Market.” Everything is there for you to enjoy a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

There are booths with all kinds of unique items to peruse and purchase. Music fills the air and you can enjoy a burger and a beer or a Pad Thai bowl and juice in a giant pineapple.

This past Sunday was the first time I went to Park Silly with a kid, our silly 5 year old granddaughter. Enjoying the market through the eyes of a child was enchanting.

When the cowboy on stilts came by, she said, “How did he get so tall?” But when he invited her to help with a trick, she shyly ducked behind me.  Before I could explain his extremely long legs,  we were off to look at a bubble machine and puppets.

Her culinary choice for lunch was cheese pizza, though she was adventurous enough to try the piece of basil on top, it didn’t pass the “kid test” and was spit out into my hand.

What passed the “kid test?”

A lot!

The Jump House sponsored by Bobby Lawrence Karate was a big hit. They let a few kids in at a time so each one of the children could have a safe and fun experience. Our girl had three turns.

The Rock Climbing Wall “easy” side was still a challenge for her and she made it three quarters of the way to the top.

Note her “climbing gear” which included her new bracelet and a rose hair clip.

Motherlode Canyon Band was performing on the Main Stage.  We grabbed a chair and sat in the shade to watch and listen to the band.

A bubblegum snow cone was her choice for a treat. I guess it had the right mix of super sweet sugar and cold. Fortunately, no brain freeze was involved.

After all the jumping and climbing, she was worn out and needed a piggy back ride back up to catch the trolley to our car. She slept all the way home.

Park Silly Market is a fun afternoon for anyone but it’s especially a silly good time for kids.
