After the parade, starting at noon, the activities move to the Greenbelt.

I may be confused about this, so any corrections or updates are welcome.

This year the Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with several businesses to provide activities from noon to 10 p.m. Basically, from after the parade until the fireworks.

Here's the link: Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce

It sounds to me like some fun things to do on the eastern Greenbelt by the river.

Remember sun protection and anything you use to protect yourself and others from mosquitoes and other bugs.

You can see the different activities, and food vendors, clicking the Chamber of Commerce Info. Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center (EIRMC) is the sponsor of the Amusement World. Activities are many and vary. An obstacle course, Rock Climbing Wall and inflatable trampoline are among the many activities.

As I explained on the Top 10 things to do in Idaho Falls, I am mixed up this year about the Battle of the Bands.

This year, there are TWO Battles of the Bands in Idaho Falls. One is being held on the Greenbelt east of the river on July 4th. It is sponsored by Chesbro Music. The Chamber of Commerce has More Information about it and possibly Chesbro Music does as well.

In Aug., a second Battle of the Bands is one of the activities held with the annual Snake River Roaring Youth Jam. For more info about the SRRYJ, which is a lot of fun for kids of ALL ages, see this link: Idaho Falls Arts Council (although it seems off-line today, it is the correct address). Mike's Music sponsors the second Battle of the Bands and is awarding $1,000 of musical equipment to the winning band at the Battle of the Bands, in Aug.

Besides seeing friends, family and other visitors during the day on the 4th, the Chamber of Commerce has a lot of activities planned for those who want to participate.

I hope it is a fun day for all who attend.

And remember to take your blankets, water or other rehydrating beverages in time to stake out your area to watch the fireworks.

Lightbulb July 4th in Idaho Falls, Part III: The Fireworks

This is a rather interesting blog when it comes to the best 4th of July Firework shows in the U.S.

See where Idaho Falls fits in. Honestly, I was surprised as this site only listed the top 10 in the U.S., per their perspective.

Talking July 4th in Idaho Falls, Part IV: The Melaleuca Freedom Celebration Fireworks

Now in its 17th year, the Melaleuca Freedom Celebration, including the enormous amount of Fireworks, ends the 4th of July Celebration in Idaho Falls.

A buffet (family style) is available. The Idaho Falls Symphony will be playing and of course, the Fireworks will be giving area residents something to think about for a long time,

Melaleuca Freedom Celebration - About the Melaleuca Freedom Celebration

Many forgot to take jackets as blankets etc. are placed in the afternoon to reserve seating to watch the fireworks. By the time they start, it is much cooler.

If you go, make sure to plan on sun protection, bug protection, plenty of fluids for everyone attending with you and jackets, plus anything you may specifically need.

This year will be different, with the loss of Wayne Richards doing the narration. However, I'm confident the excitement and "oohs and awes" will be heard as much as ever.

This is an event the residents in eastern, southeastern ID, many from UT, WY, MT and other cities in Idaho look forward to attending each year. It is NOT a place for pets.

If you go, make sure you know where you can park as some streets are closed off for the 4th. Make sure little ones who attend can walk the distance an adult can, and please be safe and a "good neighbor" to those watching the fireworks by you.

Many area residents have their favorite places to watch the fireworks. I'll remain quiet about that subject, just saying the fireworks can be enjoyed from many, many places in the Idaho Falls area.

Have fun!

Lightbulb Liberty Walk and Field of Flags now a Week before July 4th in Idaho Falls.

Oops, I'm late posting this. Some may enjoy watching the video, "Title of Liberty Walk and Program." This portion of the 4th of July Celebration in Idaho Falls starts about one week earlier.

I believe the flags are all still flying at the Bellin Road address. Perhaps someone else knows who could comment here.......

If you missed the event, like I did, enjoy the video:

National High School Broadcast Network


The 4th of July, and now the week prior to the 4th, is a big deal in the Idaho Falls area. Please be safe if setting off your own fireworks. Please remember animals and what they can't tolerate.

Have fun.

Talking Snake River Roaring Youth Jam 08/06-08/08

Had to pull this thread out from the fourth page. Let's get this thread up and running. There are so many activites right now in the Idaho Falls area, it's almost impossible to keep up with them all.

One of my most favorite events starts in two days. That would be the Snake River Roaring Youth Jam. Look at the pics from past years. It sounds like the Battle of the Bands is going to be handled a little differently this year.

There is something for kiddos, tottlers to teens, at the SRRYJ. Let us know if you have any kids who participate and what their reaction is.

http://www.idahofallsarts.org/youth_jam.html

It seems to get bigger every year. Families and adults are welcome too. But, truly this is an activity that was designed with the youth in mind. No one is to young, if they can walk or hold a paint brush.

Have fun.
