East Idaho News: New effects to be featured in Melaleuca Freedom Celebration fireworks, company promises ‘best show ever’

IDAHO FALLS — The Melaleuca Freedom Celebration will light up the sky over Idaho Falls Thursday with over 18,000 breathtaking fireworks launched from Snake River Landing.

The display, currently the largest Independence Day fireworks show west of the Mississippi River, will feature ground-shaking pyrotechnics and never-before-seen special effects synchronized to patriotic messages and music, according to a Melaleuca news release.

We’ll paint the entire sky, from top to bottom, using every color of the rainbow and synchronizing every shell and every note with the soundtrack.”
