Where in Idaho Can You Actually See Fireworks This Fourth of July?
Let's be honest. 2020 has been a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad year. We've been tired. We've been angry. We've been scared. We need something that feels like a win. That something can be as simple as seeing fireworks light-up the night sky and they're still happening a few places across the Gem State.
According to the City of Caldwell's website, they're moving forward with their fireworks launch from Brother's Park. Guests coming to watch the fireworks at the park are asked to bring something to sit on and space out six feet from the nearest family. You're also encouraged to wear masks, wash your hands frequently and cover any coughs/sneezes. Those considered high risk are encouraged to enjoy the fireworks from the safety of their own vehicle.
Not sure if you can see the show from your own backyard or from a car in another area of the city? Brother's Park is located at 4099 S. Indiana Ave. Pop that into Google Maps for a better idea.
The City of Star has been very thoughtful putting together their Fourth of July Fireworks plan. It's scheduled to take place on Saturday at the Hunter's Creek Sports Complex (1500 N Star Road.) The west parking lot opens at 9 p.m. and will be available to those who plan on staying inside their vehicles to enjoy the fireworks show.
Those wishing to watch from the field are encouraged to ride a bike or walk into the park. Upon arrival, you'll notice some large "Xs" painted on the field. These are there to help you pick out a spot that maintains a safe social distance from the next family.
We know that masks aren't the most fun thing in the world, but they're becoming a way to slow the spread of COVID-19. That's why Mayor Chadwick and his staff ended up buying a large amount of masks in patriotic colors that they'll be offering through the park.
There's a few other house keeping rules they expect you to follow both COVID-19 related and non-COVID related. You can view those HERE.
Not comfortable in a group setting quite yet? No worries. Star's planning to live stream their display via Facebook Live!
McCall might not have their famous display over Payette Lake this year, but there's still a good reason to make that drive up 55! Cascade will move forward with a scaled down version of their show. There's no food or music vendors at the golf course this year. If you show up to watch in person, keep your distance or find a safe place to watch from your car.
