Everyone coming to the 2014 Sundance Film Festival is looking for tips, hints and insider tricks on how to navigate the nation's most prestigious film festival.
But the folks who live in the festival's host city, Park City, have their own set of rules, too.
Nan Chalat Noaker, editor of The Park Record (which, in the interest of full disclosure, shares corporate overlords with The Salt Lake Tribune), serves up a handy list of helpful hints for Park City residents a list that even out-of-towners may find useful.
Among Noaker's tips:
• Use public transportation, because parking spaces are scarce.
• Do errands in the morning, when "all of those movie stars and their entourages are still sleeping off the previous night's premiere parties."
• Watch when swarms of people form in a particular spot on Main Street because there's probably a celebrity at the center of it.
• Don't count on normal cellphone coverage, even with the additional mobile cellphone towers brought in to handle the traffic.
• Carry hand sanitizer.
