Idaho Falls Magazine: 18,000 Reasons to Celebrate

Melaleuca setting the stage for its grandest show yet at Snake River Landing

The 27th Annual Melaleuca Freedom Celebration, which is currently the largest Independence Day fireworks show west of the Mississippi River, will illuminate the night sky with over 18,000 breathtaking fireworks, ground-shaking pyrotechnics and never-before-seen special effects. As one of the biggest firework shows in America, the Melaleuca Freedom Celebration combines world-class fireworks, patriotic messages and inspiring music to honor the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country.

The Melaleuca Freedom Celebration has earned the American Pyrotechnics Association’s recognition as a “must-see Independence Day firework display” in 2017 and 2018, and USA Today, Travel + Leisure magazine, and Yahoo! have featured it as one of the best firework displays in America.

The event packs more firepower than nearly every other Independence Day show in America, including those in Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia as well as San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas and Houston.
