Melaleuca Freedom Celebration to Dazzle Viewers with American-Made Fireworks, Biggest July 4th Fireworks Show West of Mississippi River

Idaho Falls, Idaho – June 23, 2022 – With firework finales set to amaze Americans from sea to shining sea, you won’t find a bigger Independence Day firework show west of the Mississippi River than at the 29th Annual Melaleuca Freedom Celebration in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

The 2022 Melaleuca Freedom Celebration features 18,237 high-flying, ground-shaking fireworks that will light up the night sky to pay tribute to America’s Founding Fathers and those who have fought for our country. It begins Monday, July 4, at 10:03 p.m., at Snake River Landing in Idaho Falls.

One of the Top Fireworks Shows in America

The Melaleuca Freedom Celebration is nationally recognized as one of the best fireworks shows in the United States. Melaleuca guarantees it rivals the largest shows in the nation, including Boston, Washington D.C, and Philadelphia, as measured by the sheer number of shells in the air.

Firing an average of 9.8 shells per second for 31 minutes, this awe-inspiring fireworks display is synchronized shell-for-shell and note-for-note with a patriotic soundtrack that honors the history of our nation and the men and women who fought and died for our freedom. The synchronized soundtrack of popular and symphonic music, historic audio clips, and spoken word will be played live on KLCE Classy 97 FM. If spectators aren’t listening to the soundtrack, they’ll miss the fundamental meaning and choreography of the show.
