It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The ‘squitos are buzzing, the people are roasting, the children all cheer. It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Please reread the former sentence while thinking of the Christmas song. Just in time for the 4th of July festivities to begin, the 2nd Annual Firecracker Festival launches.

Now is the time to break out the calendar on your phone. Coordinate with everyone so the friends and family can attend. Invite the whole block for a block party away from home. However you decide to make it happen, start the holiday on Friday the 30th at Idaho Central Legacy Fields.

What Else Is There to Do at Legacy Fields for the 2nd Annual Firecracker Festival?

The adventure begins with live music. Brianne Lynene, Jordan Shaw, Cliff Miller Band, and The Heath Clark Band will all be entertaining the masses. While the music plays, Bounce House City is ready to get the kids off the walls. Laser Tag will keep everyone on their toes with some man-to-man target shooting. Axe Throwing will test the skills and challenge the enthusiasts.

Food and drinks will not be a challenge for anyone who is ready to spend the day. Food vendors with all the eats and sugar providers for your just desserts will be on hand to help curb the cravings after all the work that was put into all the play. Playing that hard IS work, and there will be beer and wine available to those who would like to raise a glass in honor of the 4th.

And of course, the name says it all, fireworks. The sky lights up after darkness kicks in with a display synchronized to music.

Pack some comfortable chairs and a picnic blanket or two. Grab all the people you like and leave the boring ones at home to babysit the dog. From 4 PM to 11:30 PM fun lovers can enjoy the Firecracker Festival for $10 per person.

Leave work a little early on Friday. If you are lucky, this kicks off the 4th of July long holiday weekend. The 4th is on a Tuesday, so why not just take Monday off as well?
