Experience 4th of July in a Whole New Light!
Fourth of July is just around the corner and we all know what that means! It means fun and celebration. If you are in the area of Lucile, Idaho, then you are in the right place. This is the place where you can experience not only fireworks but even the cowboy lifestyle first hand. Aside from the cowboy lifestyle, it is also considered the second home to many hikers, ATV enthusiasts and those who love the water activities. If you are thinking of Independence Day to be just barbecue and fireworks, you better raise your expectations.
Experience the oldest rodeo
Starting in July, Grangeville Border Days, located 20 minutes away from Lucile will hold a number of interesting activities. Grangeville Border Days is Idaho’s oldest rodeo. Built in 1912, it has become a regular fixture in the state since then.
By July 2, you get the chance to enjoy the rodeo in a family friendly atmosphere. Starting 7pm, Grangeville Border Days will hold a family night where parents and kids could enter the event for $25 each. There will be no alcohol seating available for this night.
By July 4, be sure that you go to the area early. For as low as $5, kids younger than 12 years old can already enter the venue. For kids 12 and up, it is $10 each. This is a great opportunity to experience rodeo and Independence Day all in one.
Beginning July 2, there are parades that start at 2pm. By July 4th, the parade starts earlier than usual at 11am. This is going to be followed by the 4th of July rodeo that starts by 2pm. After the 4th of July, Grangeville Border Days will hold concerts for the entire family.
If live music and cold and frosty beverages tickle your fancy, top your day off with a visit to The Establishment on Main Street in Grangeville. Enjoy one of Idaho’s largest beer gardens and great people sharing the warm hospitality of Grangeville.
Enjoy the outdoors
Other than the rodeo, it is highly suggested that you also take the time to enjoy the majestic outdoors of Salmon River Canyon. In fact, a lot of people go on vacation in Lucile for this purpose.
