Look Ahead: Local events and things to do this week, July 9-13

The Canyons Village concert series starts; Blink-182 plays Delta Center; and a day of free pickleball in a park.

July 9 and 12

Music in the mountains

With so many options to listen to music in the summer in Utah’s mountains (Red Butte Garden, Deer Valley), what’s one more? The Concerts on the Slopes series, at Canyons Village in Park City (4000 Canyons Resort Drive) and presented by Park City Institute, launches Tuesday night with the country-folk-rock band Blitzen Trapper. The series continues Friday with the ‘80s band Starship Featuring Mickey Thomas, with singer Taylor Dayne in support. Both shows start at 7 p.m. Tickets available at parkcityinstitute.org.

blink-182 or you’ll miss it

The rock band blink-182 gets less attention these days for its music than for the personal life of drummer Travis Barker. (Marrying a Kardashian will do that to a guy.) But the band is still playing, and will bring its “One More Time” tour to the Delta Center, 301 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City, Thursday starting at 7 p.m. The supporting acts are Pierce the Veil and Landon Barker (Travis’s son). Tickets are available at deltacenter.com.

Going big on pickleball

People who enjoy pickleball will get a day in the park on Saturday, a free event Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Wardle Fields Regional Park, 14148 S. 2700 West, Bluffdale. The event will feature free pickleball and equipment use, access to pros to give tips on improving one’s game, pickleball-themed games (with prizes) and refreshments. And there will be what’s billed as the world’s largest pickleball paddle display. The event is sponsored by Break the Love, a racquet sports app, and Walmart.
