What makes the perfect Fourth of July holiday for you?


“The whole day is activity bound. It starts with snuggles and pancakes in the morning. Then, getting Mom into her favorite spot for the parade and enjoying that. Main Street Hailey comes alive with celebrations, barbecue carts, beverages, you name it. A slight lull, maybe a nap, get energized for the rodeo, a soiree for the attitude and finish with patriotic music and fireworks.”

Curt Williams, Hailey


“Family, friends, fireworks and firearms.”

Brian Ward, Ketchum


“When the whole family goes down to the Hailey parade and afterwards returns back home for a neighborhood barbecue and street party under the fireworks.”

Maria Simms, Hailey


“Watching fireworks on the golf course and having friends come over and cook barbecue chicken or other meat.”

Mason Homchick, Seattle


“Good-looking cowgirls in town wearing boots and short skirts.”

Nappy Neaman, Mid Valley


“Go see fireworks and buy fireworks that we shoot off on the ground.”

Christine Pendle, Sun Valley


“That I get to legally blow something up.”
