Special Fourth of July Parade Salutes Hailey’s Heroes
The coronavirus pandemic has turned life upside-down here in Hailey and throughout the world. It has made it challenging to do some of our favorite things, like hold our iconic Fourth of July Parade on Main Street. Despite being the hotbed of the virus at one point, our community has risen to the occasion and we have much to celebrate.
That’s why the show will still go on! The City of Hailey and The Chamber are honored to announce that we will have an Independence Day celebration after all. Events will include a special Fourth of July Parade that won’t be on Main Street, but will wander through some Hailey’s oldest neighborhoods and the night will end with a spectacular fireworks display.
The parade will kick off at noon and will feature local heroes, including health care workers and essential employees like grocery store clerks. But it will also include you! The public is invited to be part of this year’s special parade.
Hailey and Blaine County would not have been able to “crush the curve” of the COVID-19 pandemic without your help. Our entire community rallied to fight the spread of the virus. And we would like to honor you with a special Fourth of July Parade. This year, instead of horses, floats and big crowds on Main Street, our parade will star local heroes of every age in decorated vehicles and bicycles.
“We live in the greatest place on earth,” Hailey Mayor Martha Burke said. “We did what we had to do to. We did the rights things here. We care and appreciate on another and we want to honor and show gratitude for our community on this Fourth of July.”
Register for the parade here.
