Melaleuca Freedom Celebration
July 4 All day
Beginning at 10 p.m. on July 4 at Snake River Landing, Melaleuca will launch over 18,000 brilliant shells into the night sky over the banks of the Snake River in honor of America’s Founding Fathers, veterans, and service members.
Entirely free to the public, this event has won the Reader’s Choice Award as Best Annual Event four years in a row as voted by over 150,000 Post Register viewers.
This magical fireworks display has been choreographed to create magical moments, spectacular crescendos, and rare special effects. “This show rivals the pyrotechnic giants of Boston, Washington D.C, and Philadelphia, as measured by the sheer number of shells in the air,” said Heather Gobet, a fifth-generation pyrotechnician charged with firing the show.
