Melaleuca Freedom Celebration Fireworks

Written by at June 24, 2012

The Melaleuca Freedom Celebration, now in its nineteenth year, honors the spirit and memory of the more than one million American servicemen and women who made the supreme sacrifice so that our nation might be free.

Melaleuca is privileged to host the event that takes place on the Greenbelt in downtown Idaho Falls. The Celebration consists of a family style buffet dinner along the banks of the Snake River, a performance by members of the Idaho Falls Symphony Orchestra, special observances and addresses by the state’s top elected officials, culminating in the largest fireworks display west of the Mississippi.

Every year, more than 100,000 people gather from all around Idaho, and indeed from across the United States, to witness the Melaleuca free fireworks display. The pyrotechnics are computer-fired to specially selected patriotic and popular music that is choreographed note for note and shot for shot. Adding to the effect is a narration that takes the audience through key events in our nation’s history, blending in voice recordings of famous heroes and statesmen.

Seating for the Dinner starts at 7:00 PM, followed by the Symphony and then the fireworks at dusk. Tickets are sold to the Dinner and Symphony performance.
