Fourth of July in the best places on Earth

June 30, 2022

When it comes to celebrating the Fourth of July, there's no place better to be than right here, with day-long community celebrations in Bonners Ferry, Eastport and Troy on Monday that are unsurpassed! Here's a look at what all will be happening.

The Bonners Ferry Fourth of July celebration will kick off with a parade down Main Street at 3 p.m., with participants forming up at the fairgrounds at 2 p.m. It promises to be huge, and prizes will be awarded for Most Patriotic (Stars and Stripes), Crowd Pleaser (most smiles), Bonners Ferry Heritage (local roots), 1776 (Happy 246th Birthday America!) and Best Business Entry.

Fun at the fairgrounds begins at 4:30 p.m. with live music by a number of local musicians, games and challenges from 5 to 7 p.m., a performance by the cheer team from 5 to 5:30 p.m., a dance party from 5:30 to 6 p.m., a performance by the Bonners Ferry Orchestra from 6 to 7 p.m., the Genys Dance Team performing "Spirit of America" from 7:15 to 8:30 p.m. and closing speeches and songs from 9 to 9:45 p.m.

Food and drink vendors will be on site all evening.

Giving time for everyone to set up their lawn chairs and spread their blankets on the fairgrounds lawn, the fireworks display will begin at 10:10 p.m. All events will proceed rain or shine, but if inclement weather or safety concerns precludes the fireworks display, the show will be reset for Tuesday evening.

The 19th annual Eastport Fourth of July parade will step off at 1 p.m., and folks on both sides of t he border are invited to take part! The parade line-up starts at Frontier Trading at noon.

A potluck will follow at Hall Mountain Fire Department Station 3 behind Good Grief at 1:30 p.m. The menu will include hamburgers, hot dogs, coffee and water. Bring a side dish or dessert that feeds six to eight people to share.

A fireworks display will be launched at Feist Creek Resort at nightfall.

Troy’s Old Fashioned Fourth of July celebration includes a parade, car show, food vendors, craft vendors, live music all day, and the largest fireworks display in the region! Also, drop by the Information Booth to buy this year’s t-shirts.
